Connecticut v. AEP: Climate Change Nuisance Lawsuits Get Traction

A Beveridge & Diamond, P.C. Webinar

On October 23, 2009 the Firm presented a Webinar on Climate Change Nuisance Litigation for over 100 clients and prospective clients.  The materials and discussion focused on two recent Federal Court of Appeals decisions that upheld federal common law nuisance climate change claims at the pleadings stage, and a Federal District Court case that dismissed such claims as presenting non-justiciable political questions. Panelists John Guttmann, John Hanson, Jimmy Slaughter and Nico van Aelstyn discussed the cases and litigation likely to be spawned by these decisions in the environmental and other areas and ways to prevent or defend such cases.
