Steven Siros will be speaking at DRI's Annual Meeting on October 21st in San Diego, California on recent developments in the area of climate change nuisance litigation. The Supreme Court is being asked to review recent climate change nuisance decisions from the Second and Fifth Circuits and another significant nuisance case is currently on appeal in the Ninth Circuit. The viability of these common law nuisance claims is an issue that will need to be resolved by the Supreme Court and when this occurs, it will have obvious implications for GHG emitting sources.  Mr. Siros' presentation will provide an update on the current status of climate change litigation in the United States and assess what lies ahead, especially in light of recent U.S. EPA initiatives to regulate GHG emissions.
