DC: A free market legal group will argue before the New York Supreme Court’s Appellate Division that the state must turn over emails from former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s personal account, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
Schneiderman used his personal email account to discuss official business with environmental activists and therefore should be made public, the Free Market Environmental Law Clinic (FMELC) will argue before the court on Thursday.
Schneiderman’s resignation dealt a blow to environmental activists’ efforts to punish ExxonMobil for allegedly trying to cover up global warming science, but E&E Legal still wants his emails to be released.
If the court rules in FMELC’s favor, it could force Schneiderman to let his former employer search his personal emails for correspondence with environmental activists regarding his investigation into Exxon. more here
