The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday denied the Trump administration’s plea to halt proceedings in a landmark lawsuit by young people seeking stronger federal action on climate change, The Hill reports.

The Department of Justice turned to the Supreme Court earlier this month in an attempt to halt the discovery process.
