a federal appeals court on friday rejected the trump administration’s renewed bid to dismiss a lawsuit by young activists who say it is ignoring the perils of climate change.by a 3-0 vote, the 9th us circuit court of appeals in san francisco said the government fell short of the “high bar” needed to dismiss the oregon case, originally brought in 2015 against the administration of president barack obama.twenty-one children and young adults accused federal officials and oil industry executives of violating their due process rights by knowing for decades that carbon pollution poisons the environment, but doing nothing about it.the government contended that letting the case proceed would be too burdensome, unconstitutionally pit the courts against the executive branch, and require improper “agency decision-making” by forcing officials to answer questions about climate change.but the appeals court said the issues raised “are better addressed through the ordinary course of litigation.”an earlier government bid to end the case failed in march.the activists, whose ages range from preteen to the early 20s, are seeking various environmental remedies. a trial is scheduled for oct. 29 in the federal court in eugene, oregon.representatives of the us department of justice did not immediately respond to requests for comment. a lawyer for the activists did not immediately respond to similar requests.the case is us et al v us district court for the district of oregon, eugene, 9t...
