A trial date has been set in a lawsuit initially filed nearly two years ago by 16 Montanans, who at that time were between the ages of 2 and 18, against the state government over concerns of policies they say favor fossil fuels and lead to climate change. The trial is set for February 6th 2023 in Lewis and Clark County District Court. The plaintiffs are backed by Our Children’s Trust, an organization that’s filed a similar case at the federal level. The law firms McGarvey Law in northwestern Montana and Western Environmental Law Center in Helena are also representing the youths.
