U.S. judge throws out climate change lawsuits against big oil

By Sudhin Thanawala

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — A U.S. judge who held a hearing about climate change that received widespread attention ruled Monday that Congress and the president werebestsuitedtoaddressthecontribution of fossil fuels to global warming, throw- ingoutlawsuitsthatsoughttoholdbigoil

companies liable for the Earth’s changing environment. Noting that the worldhas also benefited significantlyfromoilandotherfossilfuel, Judge William Alsup said questions about howtobalancethe“worldwidepositivesof the energy” against its role in global

warming“demandtheexpertiseofourenvi-

ronmental agencies, our diplomats, our Executive, andat least theSenate.” “The problem deserves a solution on a more vast scale than can be suppliedby a district judge or jury in a public nuisance case,”hesaid.

Alsup’s ruling came in lawsuits brought bySanFranciscoandneighboringOakland

Thelawsuitssaidthecompaniescreateda public nuisance and should pay for sea walls and other infrastructure to protect against the effects of climate change — construction that could cost billions of dollars. The Oakland city attorney’s offices did not immediately have comment. John Cote, a spokesman for the San Francisco city attorney’s office, said the office was reviewing the ruling and would decide its next steps “shortly,” but the lawsuit had “forced a public court proceeding on cli- matescience.” “We’re pleasedthat the court recognized that the science of global warming is no longerin dispute,”hesaid.

California lawmakers boost medical, dental payments

By Jonathan J. Cooper

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO — Doctors and dentists who see low-income patients on Medi-Cal are getting a raise for the secondyear in a row under a budget deal approved by CalifornialawmakersMonday. TheAssembly andSenate approvedmore than $2 billion forhighermedical andden- tal payments andto forgive loans for doc- tors and dentists who spend much of their timetreating Medi-Cal patients. Gov. Jerry Brown, who negotiatedwith lawmakers on theplan, isexpectedtosignit. The money comes from a $2-per-pack tobacco tax increaseapprovedby voters in

2016andfederalmatchingfunds.

The plan passed the Legislature without debate following a contentious fight last year over how to spend the tobacco tax money. Brown wantedto use the money to cover normal growth in Medi-Cal costs, angering health care provider groups who

funded the campaign to raisethetobacco tax and saidvoters were toldthe money would be used to boost provider pay- ments. Brown ultimately

agreedtoprovidesupple-

mentalpaymentsforpre-

ventive services and

providerswhoseealarge numberofMed-Cal patients, but somelaw- makers saidtheproposal renegedon prom- isestovoters. This year’s deal boosts payments even furtherandcoversmorepreventiveservices. One in three Californians is covered by Medi-Cal, which is jointly funded by the state and federal governments. Providers and health care advocates have long said that lowpayments for doctors anddentists discourage them from accepting Medi-Cal patients, leadingtolongwaittimestoseea physicianinsomeareas.

California lawmakers approve revamp of sex misconduct policy

SACRAMENTO—Apanel of California lawmakers on Monday approved a new sexual misconduct policy that will task outsideexperts with substantiating claims and recommending punishment but still leave lawmakers with the ultimate say on how to discipline their colleagues and employees.

Pamela Lopez, a lobbyist who filed a complaint that led to the resignation of former Assemblyman Matt Dababneh, applauded the new policy but said women will bewatching to ensureit is effective. “The devil is always in the implementa- tion,”shetoldlawmakers.
