CEI is one of several organizations singled out for special attention in a subpoena issued by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey that was released publicly today. Previously, the Virgin Islands Attorney General directly targeted CEI with illegal document demands, and then dismissed his own subpoena action in the face of opposition. We continue our pursuit of court sanctions for this abuse of power.
CEI President Kent Lassman responded to Massachusetts AG Healey:
“Today’s release of the Massachusetts Attorney General’s subpoena to ExxonMobil demonstrates the growing threat to the civil liberties posed by a multi-state coalition of Attorneys General who choose politics over the Constitution. The fight to defend free speech and the ability of all Americans to pursue the issues they believe in is essential.”
