MAP Statement on Delaware Superior Court’s Ruling

Washington, D.C. – Phil Goldberg, Special Counsel for the Manufacturers’ Accountability Project, issued the following statement in response to the Delaware Superior Court’s decision on the motions to dismiss the state’s climate lawsuit.

“The Delaware state court clearly recognized that regulating out of state and global greenhouse gas emissions is ‘beyond the limits’ of Delaware law. This ruling underscores the fact that determining how best to address climate change and its impacts should be addressed by Congress and federal agencies, not by a patchwork of state judges.”
