The Supreme Court has ruled that three judges are incompetent in...


The state thought several of the judges were incompetent in the climate lawsuit that will be brought before the Supreme Court next week.

Now the court has ruled that three of them are incompetent.

The country’s supreme court will assess whether the state violated the Constitution when they granted new oil licenses in the Arctic. It is Greenpeace and Nature and Youth, with the Grandparents’ climate action as party helper, who have complained to the court.

The plaintiffs lost the case in both the district court and the court of appeal.

Incompetent judges

Judge Wenche Elizabeth Arntzen is known to be incompetent because she is married to Eirik Akerlie, who was a judge in the same case in the Court of Appeal.

Judge Hilde Indreberg is incompetent because she was part of the committee that prepared section 112 of the Constitution. It is this section that forms the basis for the climate lawsuit.

The Supreme Court is divided over the third judge, Ragnhild Noer. But the majority concludes that she is incompetent due to her environmental commitment.

Noer took part in the Alta campaign, and received a fine that was served in prison. She has also been a member and active member of Natur og Ungdom and Naturvernforbundet, and has been a member of the steering committees in the environmental organizations WCEL and GJIE.

The Supreme Court, on the other hand, does not believe that Kine Elisabeth Steinsvik is incompetent. The judge’s father-in-law was a member of one of the organizations that is a party assistant in the case.
