Texas Judge Rules the Atmosphere is part of the Public Trust!
This is good news! All we needed was ONE judge to make a formal ruling, including the atmosphere as part of the public trust, deserving protection for future generations. And Judge Triana of the Texas Circuit Court did just that last week. New Mexico District Court Judge, Sarah Singleton denied the NM government's Motion to Dismiss...so that means their case will move forward! The federal Judge Wilkins sided with the fossil fuel lobbyists and the US Government and dismissed the federal case, but we filed a Motion to Reconsider and will appeal all the way to the Supreme Court to be heard.
Thank you for signing this petition. We will submit it as an Amicus brief once the case is officially in the Appeals process. Please sign and forward to your friends. It WILL make a difference for the court to see thousands of people around the world are counting on a fair chance to protect the planet for our future.
Thank you, Alec Loorz and the iMatter team
