Native Village of Kivalina v. ExxonMobil Corp. (9th Cir. - Sept. 21, 2012)

Look through the list of counsel in this case.  It's a who's who of major litigators.  Think about how much money got spent every single hour.

All for a lawsuit that had no chance of success.

But when you sue all the oil companies, alleging that they caused global warming, you get noticed.

Which is perhaps the point.

Too bad all that money couldn't have been spent on something more productive.
