Litigation: CSLDF takes an active interest in litigation involving climate scientists. Multiple climate scientists are currently involved in litigation in state and federal courts across the United States. CSLDF works to help raise funds for scientists’ legal defenses, serves as a resource in finding pro bono legal representation, and provides support during difficult litigation proceedings as well as when legal action is threatened.
Education: CSLDF works to educate the scientific community about their rights and their responsibilities regarding legal issues surrounding their work, including providing consultations with attorneys and other legal resources. We also work to educate the general public about the legal issues facing scientists.
Knowledge Bank: CSLDF serves as a clearinghouse for information related to legal actions taken against scientists. Our goal is to provide lawyers representing scientists with information about past cases and strategies.
