Publication on Prospects for U.S. Climate Litigation
Posted on June 5th, 2009 by Dr. Wil Burns
Potential reading for climate change law courses: “Climate Litigation – Emerging Litigation Challenges” by Gil Keteltas, Joanne Lichtman, David Lisi and John Horan. The paper was prepared for use at both the 2008 Georgetown University Law Center Corporate Counsel Institute, and the 2008 ABA Section of Litigation Annual Conference.
The paper could be a good one to assign to students because it both does an excellent job of summarizing cases that have been filed to date and discusses the potential loci for the lion’s share of future litigation, which the authors suggest may be administrative claims and securities litigation.
