Youth Climate Lawsuit
December 11, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Huge Important Case! Oral arguments will be heard before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco on December 11, 2017 on trial right now set for February. Trump is trying an unusual strategy to try to block it from moving forward.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has given the Juliana v. US attorneys the opportunity to argue in support of the fundamental & constitutional right to a livable climate. Faced with a climate emergency, the youth plaintiffs will call on the Ninth Circuit to lift the temporary stay and allow the case to proceed to trial. The hearing will be Monday, December 11, 2017 at 10am at the James R. Browning United States Courthouse 95 7th St, San Francisco, CA. You are invited to show up in solidarity with the youth plaintiffs and stand for climate rights! But people should begin to gather there at 8:00 am. You can also livestream at https://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/media/live_oral_arguments.php.
