California Superior Court Judge Ernest H. Goldsmith has told the California Air Resources Board to "set aside" the cap and trade portion of its landmark climate change law. The decision enjoins CA from any cap and trade related activity including rulemaking and implementation until the court is satisfied ARB has properly examined other ways of obtaining the same carbon reductions.
Environmental justice groups under the umbrella Association of Irritated Residents brought the suit, claiming the cap and trade system will cause disproportionate pollution in communities already burdened by more than their share of diesel and other air pollution.
