A lawsuit brought against the state by two Eugene teens will finally get its day in court Tuesday. The suit asks the Oregon governor to do more to prevent climate change.
Olivia Chernaik and Kelsey Juliana will appear in Lane County District Court before Judge Karsten Rasmussen. Their case asks the judge to recognize that lawmakers hold natural resources, including air and water, in public trust and those resources must be preserved for the future.
Kelsey Juliana was a freshman in high school when she first filed the lawsuit. Now she's a freshman in college.
