Mark your calendars, for all of those who have been following the progress of Our Children’s Trust lawsuit against the government in defense of a healthy and livable climate for all, their trial date has been scheduled by U.S. District Court Justice Ann Aiken for February 5th 2018.
“Attorneys for Our Children’s Trust are claiming that the young plaintiffs are legally entitled to live in a clean and safe environment free from excessive carbon pollution. The argument is based on the “public trust” doctrine, which holds that the federal government holds certain parts of the country, such as shorelines and waterways, in trust for the benefit of the citizens of the United States. Despite incessant efforts by government and industry to prevent our case from moving forward, the date is set for trial,” said 20 year old plaintiff Alex Loznak in a press release after the judge set the date for trial. “Having seen some of the most damning evidence to be presented at trial, I am confident that our claims will prevail.””
