The “Kids Climate Trial,” Juliana v. US, was scheduled to start in Eugene on October 29 in the Federal courthouse. The trial is currently on hold, but even so, this is probably the most far-reaching environmental litigation in the country this year and will have national media coverage from start to finish. This case seeks to force the federal government to take action to reduce carbon emissions under some new legal theories.
