City and County of Honolulu v. Sunoco LP, et al.

The City and County of Honolulu, along with the Honolulu Board of Water Supply, have taken legal action against several oil and gas companies, such as Chevron, BP, and ExxonMobil, for their role in contributing to climate change and its negative effects on Hawaii. The lawsuit claims that the defendants' use of fossil fuels has caused harm to Hawaii and cites news coverage from the 1980s to the 2000s as evidence. This news coverage highlights the potential consequences of climate change on Hawaii, including flooding and rising sea levels, and emphasizes the role of fossil fuels in causing climate change. The lawsuit may seek damages or other forms of relief for the harm caused by climate change.

Yelp Inc. v. Ken Paxton

Improved Summary: Yelp has proactively initiated legal action against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to forestall a possible lawsuit that might contest Yelp's right to categorize crisis pregnancy centers on its platform as entities that do not offer abortions or referrals to abortion providers. Yelp maintains that any such lawsuit would violate its First Amendment rights, asserting that its labels accurately represent the services these centers provide. The potential lawsuit from Paxton's office, hinted at last week, could aim to penalize Yelp for purported breaches of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. Yelp's legal action seeks judicial affirmation that its labels are not misleading and a ban on Texas initiating future lawsuits regarding these labels.
