Listen to the Podcast
On June 4, 2019, a Ninth Circuit panel heard oral argument in Juliana v. United States, regarding whether the U.S. Constitution gives rise to constitutional and federal common law claims against the Executive Branch for actions alleged to cause or contribute to climate change.
The federal government argues that the plaintiffs lack standing, and that the case was brought improperly on procedural grounds. In this episode, experts discuss the potential outcome and constitutional implications of the case.
