Washington, D.C. — Today, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled in favor of the 21 youth plaintiffs
in Juliana v. United States , the constitutional climate lawsuit filed against the federal government. The
Court denied the Trump administration’s application for stay, preserving the U.S. District Court’s trial
start date of October 29, 2018. The Court also denied the government’s “premature” request to review the
case before the district court hears all of the facts that support the youth’s claims at trial. The Supreme
Court’s decision follows the July 20 decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals, also in favor of the youth,
denying the government’s highly unusual second petition for writ of mandamus.
