This resource tracks pro-envi­ron­men­tal lit­i­ga­tion brought by AGs dur­ing the Biden and Trump admin­is­tra­tions. This includes cas­es in which AGs fought against the admin­is­tra­tion, as well as cas­es in which AGs defend­ed the admin­is­tra­tion’s pro-envi­ron­men­tal poli­cies. Thus, the wins” and loss­es” dis­played on the chart below do not nec­es­sar­i­ly cor­re­spond with AG win/​loss rates against an admin­is­tra­tion. To see that break­down, use the AG Posi­tion” fil­ter. Click on each entry to see an expla­na­tion of the out­come. You can also fil­ter by admin­is­tra­tion and by out­come.
