U.S. Climate Change Litigation Chart: Excellent Resource for Following "Progress" in U.S.-based Lawsuits

Despite the fact that the United States continues to lack any sort of federal legislation on climate change, there is a growing range of climate change-related litigation unfolding in the U.S. International law firm Arnold and Porter LLP has put together a remarkable resource for those interested in U.S.-based (primarily) legal actions.

The resource is called simply Climate Change Litigation in the U.S. It is organized into four types of actions:
  • Statutory claims
  • Common law claims
  • Public international law claims
  • Climate protests
The website is certainly worth a look for those interested in how climate change litigation is developing in the U.S.
