High court de­clines to ex­tend halt to cli­mate change law­suit

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

The Supreme Court on Fri­day de­clined for now to stop a law­suit filed by ac­tivists who say the gov­ern­ment isn’t do­ing enough to pre­vent cli­mate change.

But the high court told the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion that the gov­ern­ment can still pe­ti­tion a lower court to dis­miss the case, as the gov­ern­ment had asked the high court to do.

Trial in the case had been sched­uled to be­gin ear­lier this week in Eu­gene, Ore­gon, but the Supreme Court had tem­po­rar­ily halted the trial.
