Federal Judge Orders Resumption of Multnomah County’s Climate Accountability Lawsuit in State Court

Jun 11, 2024

Multnomah County’s civil claim for damages against the fossil fuel industry is headed back to Oregon Circuit Court. The ruling is an important validation by the Federal court of the County’s position that the County’s claims should be heard in state court. The County sued oil companies for fraud, public nuisance, negligence, and trespass a year ago, on the second anniversary of the 2021 Heat Dome that killed more than 116 Oregonians.
