We are reopening and continuing the givealittle page for Sarah's legal challenge so that the many people who have donated to the cause can keep up to date with where it is at and others may still contribute to it.
It has already been five months since filing date and while no hearing date has been set yet, the case is still progressing.
The first affidavits from the Crown lawyers have come through, including an affidavit from Tim Groser, former Minister of Climate Change issues. After going through these affidavits, the lawyers and Sarah will then consider a further application for "discovery" (legal jargon for the compulsory disclosure of documents relating to the case).
Sarah hopes that through the discovery process she can increase transparency around the Minister of Climate Change issue's decision making - especially in regards to the setting of the INDC: Intended Nationally Determined Contributions.
"There is still a lot of work ahead of us before the case can make it to court, but we will get there eventually. We are all in this together, and your donations have helped to make this case possible!"
We are greatly encouraged by the support, encouragement and generosity of the donors. They have come from around New Zealand and their thoughtful, informed comments are testament to their knowledge of climate change: the critical issue of our time.
