The Virginia Supreme Court has dismissed a case brought by the commonwealth’s Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli II, against a former University of Virginia professor. The court ruled that Cuccinelli does not have the authority to force the university to produce records related to Dr. Michael Mann’s research on climate change. Cuccinelli (R), a vocal climate skeptic, had demanded that the University of Virginia, Mann’s former employer, turn over seven years’ worth of emails and documents relating to a state-funded research grant that Mann received while employed by the university.
