CT – Civil Rights | Plausibly Live

This past week the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court ordered a stay, delaying the start of the trial of the case, Juliana v US. this is the second time that there has been a stay in the famous case, which seeks to force the US Government to pursue policies that would “keep warming in check.” Both the Obama Administration and the Trump administration (which submitted a 103-page argument to the Court asking for the stay) have argued that the case is problematic, in that it violates the separation of powers in the Constitution.

The plaintiffs, supposedly a group of young people, claim that their civil rights have been violated and they have demanded policy changes that would “protect their civil rights” from the effects of global climate change in the future.

This raises a number of questions, one of which is, what exactly is a “civil right?”
