By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected a bid by President Donald Trump’s administration to put the brakes on a lawsuit filed by young activists who have accused the U.S. government of ignoring the perils of climate change. The lawsuit was filed in 2015 against former President Barack Obama and government agencies in a federal court in Oregon. The Trump administration, inheriting the case, had asked for the lawsuit to be thrown out or put on hold.
