New York’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, has just ruled that the New York State Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, has the right to demand documents in a court case that accuses Exxon of hiding internal research that shows burning oil and gas leads to catastrophic, man-made global warming. Schiederman has been on a witch hunt for more than year. Schneiderman himself is accused of secretly (illegally) colluding with Big Green groups in targeting Exxon. Schneiderman has been subpoenaed and told to turn over emails and other records, and he has refused to do so (see NY AG, Others Served Congressional Subpoena re Exxon Witch Hunt). Yet Schneiderman demands Exxon turn over records for his fishing expedition. The man is a menace–and a putz. Unfortunately New York’s high court appears to be corrupt too–witness their decision to uphold local frack bans (see Shale Drilling in NY is Over – High Court Upholds Town Bans). Now the high court says Exxon must comply (like a Borg drone) with Schneiderman’s request. Our advice to Exxon: Pull a Hillary and say the emails got deleted from a private server. Hey, it worked for her!…
