This is the first and yet unprecedented case for civic activists and a successful case that is likely to form the basis of subsequent legal practice in the United States. The teenagers and their lawyers argued that the state accused the state of failing to control gas emissions, violating Montana’s “clean and healthy environment” laws and its right to develop and sell fossil fuels.

The case turned out to be the exact opposite of a federal appeals court ruling that dismissed a similar claim by other environmental activist plaintiffs on the pretext that the courts could not influence the environment.

“This is what climate justice and our children’s constitutional rights look like in the courts,” said Nate Bellinger, Senior Assistant at Our Children’s Trust, who represents youth in court.
