Welcome to the website for Harvard Climate Justice Coalition’s lawsuit against the Harvard Corporation. On November 19, 2014, students at Harvard University filed a lawsuit to enjoin the Corporation’s investments in gas, oil, and coal companies.
Update on October 5, 2015: Today we filed our appeals brief in the Massachusetts Appeals Court. The brief asks the Court to reverse the lower court’s dismissal and allow us to take our case to trial. We’re very excited to have support from the City of Cambridge, Massachusetts, where Harvard is located. We’re also very happy to have amicus briefs from prominent climate scientist James Hansen and the Animal Legal Defense Fund.
