Less than two weeks before its trial date, a landmark constitutional case about climate change skidded to a halt, as ordered by the U.S. Supreme Court. The 21 young plaintiffs in Juliana v. United States sued the federal government in 2015 claiming that it is knowingly endangering their rights to life, liberty and property by promoting a fossil fuel-driven economy. They hope that the halt is short-lived. Their attorneys and one of the plaintiffs in the case respond to the trial delay in No Ordinary Lawsuit, the inside story of what observers call a Hail Mary pass for the future of the planet.Stay tuned for further updates and episodes from the No Ordinary Lawsuit series.#youthvgov #TrialoftheCentury #SeeYouInCourt #climatechange #civilrights #environment #climate #youth #activism #youthactivism #sciencematters #trial #lawsuitFollow the lawsuit on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: @youthvgovFor more information visit: noordinarylawsuit.org
