On July 21, 2004, the attorneys general of eight states—Connecticut, New York, California, Iowa, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin—and the City of New York filed suit against six energy providers in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, seeking abatement of an alleged public nuisance, the global warming effects caused by carbon dioxide emissions. Three environmental groups, Open Space Institute, Inc., Open Space Conservancy Inc., and Audubon Society of New Hampshire filed a similar suit in the same court on the same day.
