The defendant name has changed, but the lawsuit is the same. 

A pair of Lane County teenagers are suing Oregon's governor (now Brown, not Kitzhaber) over climate change. 

Chernaik v Brown would require the state to develop a plan for dealing with greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. 

The suit is the brainchild of Our Children's Trust, based in Eugene. 

Executive Director Julia Olson joins us with details of the recent court hearing, and what happens now.
