Cucinelli AgainOctober 5, 2010
Ho boy. What’s with this guy? He’s reissued the same, tired subpoena against Michael Mann. Completely disregarding the issue of climate science, there’s the fine little matter of academic freedom as well. Really, it’s incredible. Deltoid has some commentary.
In his latest political attack on climate science, Cuccinelli demands seven years’ worth of Dr. Mann’s emails, documents and just about every other shred of paper and bytes related to one state grant Mann received during his tenure at UVA. Cuccinelli wants to see every email Mann exchanged with a list of 39 other scientists, as well as Mann’s communications with his secretaries and research associates, related to the state grant. Cuccinelli only stripped his inappropriate request for documents related to federal grants after Judge Peatross smacked down that trolling effort, although he vows to appeal to re-open that garbage can.
