BREAKING: Today, in a per curiam opinion, Chief Judge Sidney R. Thomas, and Circuit Judges Marsha Berzon and Michelle Friedland of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the Trump administration’s second petition for writ of mandamus in the constitutional climate lawsuit, Juliana v. United States, brought by 21 youth supported by Our Children’s Trust. #youthvgov

#youthvgov also made the front page of Roseburg, Oregon’s News Review! 📰 And another story about wildfires. #climatechangeisreal #climatechange @nrtoday

Fitting that Juliana v. United States makes the cover of the Eugene paper, @registerguard, underneath a story about deadly Oregon wildfires. #youthvgov #climatechangeisreal

BREAKING: Today, U.S. District Court Judge Ann Aiken heard oral argument in the constitutional climate lawsuit Juliana v. United States. Judge Aiken considered the Trump administration’s latest procedural tactics to avoid trial: a motion for judgment on the pleadings (“MJP”) and a motion for summary judgment (“MSJ”). Supporters for the youth plaintiffs packed the Wayne Morse Federal Courthouse the courtroom in Eugene and three overflow rooms. #youthvgov

The U.S. government has known the dangers of #climatechange for over 50 years, and has known how to solve it. Yet the government has chosen to support the fossil fuel energy system anyway. That is why the 21 Juliana v. US plaintiffs are suing and asking for a Climate Recovery Plan based on science! Share this or use #youthvgov to stand in solidarity with these brave climate advocates as they head to a hearing in their lawsuit against the Trump administration. Tune in to the Our Children’s Trust Facebook livestream of the press conference later this afternoon, as soon as the hearing is over.

🔊🔊🔊 The federal government recently filed a second “writ of mandamus” petition with the Ninth Circuit and a second motion to stay all proceedings. Yesterday, Ninth Circuit Judges denied the government’s motion to stop the case! The federal government is threatening to go to the Supreme Court. Please SHOW YOUR SUPPORT of youth plaintiffs at a rally and arguments on other important government motions before Judge Ann Aiken in open court on Wednesday, July 18, beginning at 1:00 p.m. at the U.S. District Court in Eugene, Oregon at 405 E 8th Ave. #youthvgov

It makes sense that Jayden and Aji would come to Oregon for a hearing in their climate lawsuit...in the middle of a heat wave. #staycool #youthvgov #climatechangeisreal
