Held vs. Montana Before the Montana Supreme Court

Jul 10 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Oral arguments in Held v. State of Montana will be heard before the Montana Supreme Court on July 10, 2024, at 9:30 am in Helena at the State Capitol in the old Supreme Court Chambers (Room 303).

Last Summer, we made history when Judge Seeley ruled wholly in favor of the 16 youth Plaintiffs, enshrining into law science-based protections for children’s most fundamental rights, and making Held the world’s first, winning, youth-led constitutional climate lawsuit. It would not have been possible without your support.

As we expected, the State appealed the historic win to the Montana Supreme Court and now, attorneys for the youth plaintiffs will have the opportunity to underscore the importance of upholding Judge Seeley’s landmark ruling at oral argument.

We need your help! 

For now, please Save the Date to join us in court: 

Attend the hearing and support these young climate leaders!
