In a telephone hearing Wednesday, U.S. District Court Judge Ann Aiken discussed new motions the Trump Administration has filed in Juliana v. United States, the climate lawsuit brought by 21 young plaintiffs. One motion renews the administration’s objections to proceeding to trial and asks the president to be dismissed from the case. Another argues the plaintiffs do not have standing to bring the case.

Aiken ordered the lawyers to brief the motions and said oral argument on the motion to dismiss the president will likely occur in July. Aiken said the trial will not be delayed and is still slated for Oct. 29.
