Sixteen AGs Filed Supplemental Brief in Baltimore Case Against Fossil Fuel Companies

September 14, 2021

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh led a coalition of sixteen state attorneys general in filing a supplemental brief in the City of Baltimore’s case against fossil fuel companies. In a supplemental brief, the fossil fuel companies attempted to remove the case to federal court. The states’ brief urges the Court to reject this attempt, arguing that the national and global implications of the companies’ conduct doesn’t change the fact that the City’s claims are for state-law violations.
