Texan Investigation

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has issued a subpoena for documents Professor Michael Mann submitted for to the University of Virginia to secure government-funded grants. The state’s Fraud against Taxpayers Act gives him the right to these documents because they are on state e-mail servers and because the grant was taxpayers’ money. The Attorney General also wants all e-mail between Mann and his research assistants, secretaries and 39 other scientists across the country. Deputy Attorney General Wesley Russell argued the case before Judge Paul Peatross saying there was a “clear and consistent pattern of manipulation of data.” The University of Virginia is fighting a fierce rear-guard action since these e-mails may include those deleted by the CRU after they were outed by a whistle-blower last year.
