Recent years have seen an increasingly diverse range of climate change litigation throughout the United States.  Join us as our panel, moderated by Rishi Reddi, Director of Environemtnal Justice at EEA, focuses on two key high-profile damages cases at the forefront of this issue: Juliana v. United States, and Conservation Law Foundation v. ExxonMobil Corp

Julia Olson, lead counsel for Plaintiffs in Juliana - 21 youth and organizational plaintiff Earth Guardians - will discuss her clients’ constitutional climate lawsuit against the U.S. government. Their complaint asserts that the United States has engaged in conduct that caused or allowed climate change, violating the youngest generation’s constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property, and that the United States has failed to protect essential public trust resources.

Alexandra St. Pierre will discuss CLF v. ExxonMobil , in which CLF has filed suit against ExxonMobil for allegedly leaving its oil storage facilities in Everett and elsewhere vulnerable to flooding from storms and rising seas.
