U.S. Supreme Court Dismisses Climate Change Nuisance Lawsuits

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion in American Electric Power Co. v. Connecticut, in which the Court held that the climate change nuisance lawsuits should be dismissed: “The Clean Air Act and the Environmental Protection Agency action the Act authorizes, we hold, displaces the claims the plaintiffs seek to pursue.”

I will post a more detailed discussion of this opinion, but I wanted everyone to be aware of this important development.
