U.S. top court rejects Trump administration bid to halt climate trial

WASHINGTON, Nov 2 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday rejected a bid by the President Donald Trump’s administration to block a trial in a lawsuit filed by young activists who have accused the U.S. government of ignoring the perils of climate change.

The loss for the administration means it now faces a high-profile examination of U.S. climate change policy during the trial that was due to begin on Oct. 29 in Eugene, Oregon but has since been postponed by the judge.
