Judge Orders New York AG Schneiderman to Turn Over Secret Climate Change Docs

Newsmax discusses with Sam Kazman the New York Supreme Court's ruling in favor of CEI in their case against New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. 

A New York judge has ordered the state's Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to turn over any documents that pertain to a confidentiality deal about climate change investigations, according to The Washington Times.

Based on the ruling, Schneiderman has 30 days to fulfill a Freedom of Information request that the Competitive Enterprise Institute filed in May. The Institute sought the documentation on a pact that was made with other states or environmental activists to look into fossil fuel companies and climate change critics.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute's general counsel Sam Kazman praised the decision as "a blow to the anti-speech campaign" of Schneiderman.

"While the campaign by him and his cohorts that began in March continues against those who disagree with him on global warming, we are glad to see that it is being held subject to the basic laws of the land," Kazman said, according to the Washington Times.
