The Trump administration scored a major win against climate activists when a federal judge tossed out a lawsuit brought by environmental activists.
A recent courtroom ruling gave President Trump and his administration a big victory, as a federal judge tossed out a lawsuit brought by environmentalists seeking to prevent Trump’s deregulation of policies related to climate change.
In the ruling, US District Judge Paul Diamond said he had “neither the authority nor the inclination to assume control of the Executive Branch.”
From The Epoch Times:
A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit from an environmental organization and two Pennsylvania boys that sought to block deregulatory action by the Trump administration against climate change policies, citing the fact that the court doesn’t have the power to instruct what the White House can or cannot do.
The lawsuit, dubbed “Clean Air Council v. the United States,” claimed President Donald Trump’s rollbacks on restrictive climate policies violated the public trust. The plaintiffs sought to block anything that would violate “the constitutional rights to a life-sustaining climate system.”
But in the Feb. 19 dismissal, U.S. District Judge Paul Diamond in Philadelphia ruled that the Constitution doesn’t guarantee what the boys and the organization, Clean Air Council, called a due process right to a “life-sustaining climate system.” Diamond also disagreed with a judge overseeing a similar case in Oregon.
