South Carolina Joins 19-State Energy Lawsuit Against California and Four Other States

South Carolina Attorney General, Alan Wilson, recently announced his state’s involvement in a staggering 19-state coalitional lawsuit led by Alabama against California, Connecticut, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Rhode Island. The suit challenges the constitutionality of these states’ efforts to control America’s energy future.

The five defendant states are mired in controversy for instigating unprecedented litigation against some of the country’s most crucial energy companies. They argue these companies contribute to an alleged “climate crisis” and are demanding billions of dollars in damages.

According to Wilson, California and the other states may impose tremendous financial penalties and coercive remedies that could transform energy and fuel consumption and production across the country. The 19-state coalition seeks to address these grave constitutional issues by appealing to the Supreme Court.
