Assignment

See additional short assignment on Moodle.

I have prepared a detailed review guide to the district court order in Juliana. Teams 1-3 should use this to make sure that they clearly argue the points that the court deals with in its order. Team 4 does not need to address every point but should use this to check that they have identified the key issues.

Juliana – Oregon Children – Dist Court Order – Study Guide

Each team should prepare any presentation materials it deems useful to make its arguments. Take as much time as you need, we can spread this over more than one class.

Our teams will begin the discussion of Juliana v. United States, the Children’s Climate Case

Team One – argue the plaintiff’s standing case from the First Amended Complaint

Team Two – argue the plaintiff’s  claims for relief from the First Amended Complaint

Team Three – Argue for dismissal of plaintiff’s First Amended Complaint based on the Federal Defendant’s First Motion to Dismiss.

Team Four – Present the district court’s findings on standing and the plaintiff’s claims for relief.
