Court Rules France Failed to Properly Address Air Pollution

In a landmark ruling, a French court found the government failed to adequately tackle air pollution around Paris. The decision came in response to a lawsuit by a woman and her teenage daughter who experienced respiratory illnesses believed to be linked to high levels of pollution in the Parisian suburb where they live. Environmentalists hailed the ruling as a crucial precedent. The group Ecology Without Borders said, in response, “Today victims of pollution, like victims of pesticide, should not be afraid to go to court to defend their health.”
