Virginia Supreme Court Rejects Subpoenas of Climate Scientistsí Emails

Today, the Virginia Supreme Court rejected Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelliís Civil Investigative Demands (CID) -- essentially subpoenas -- that would have required the University of Virginia (UVA) to turn over emails and other private correspondence among former university climate scientist Michael Mann and dozens of his colleagues.

Since April 2010, Cuccinelli, who does not accept climate change science, has repeatedly attempted to use his power as attorney general to access the scientistsí correspondence -- including emails, research drafts and even handwritten notes -- through the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act.


Good! Glad to see that Cucinelli has been shut down. This was an outrageous attempt to harass scientists working on climate change research.

1. This is harassment, plain and simple.

What grounds did Cuccinelli claim he had to ask for those subpoenas?

I wonder if Mann can bring some kind of suit against Cuccinelli or the state for harassment?

2. Cuccinelli is claiming that ALL of Climate Change science is fraud

And therefore, any scientists involved are part of a conspiracy.

3. But who is he saying the supposed fraud is against?

Are they getting tax dollars?
