An Uncertain Climate for Environmental Suits

Attorneys using judicial avenues to force action on climate change will confront - for the foreseeable future - a firmly conservative, pro-business Supreme Court. Professor Michael Allan Wolf (Univ. Florida College of Law) explains how attorneys can package environmentally-friendly causes in conservative-friendly arguments; and Philip Gregory (Gregory Law Group), co-counsel in a climate suit currently stayed by SCOTUS, argues that the Fifth Amendment guarantees the right to a stable, secure climate.
