Described as “world’s first climate liability suit”

“To cheers and hoots from climate campaigners in court, three judges ruled that government plans to cut emissions by just 14–17% compared to 1990 levels by 2020 were unlawful, given the scale of the threat posed by climate change.
Jubilant campaigners said that governments preparing for the Paris climate summit later this year would now need to look over their shoulders for civil rights era-style legal challenges where emissions-cutting pledges are inadequate.”
