Massachusetts AG says state supreme court affirms authority to investigate Exxon
Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey issued the following statement: "For the second time this month, Exxon's scorched earth campaign to block our investigation has been entirely rejected by the courts. In its decision today, our state's highest court affirmed that Exxon is subject to our laws, and that our office has the authority to investigate. Now Exxon must come forward with the truth, what it knew about climate change, when, and what it told the world. The people of Massachusetts - and people everywhere - deserve answers." The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, in addition to affirming her office's authority to investigate Exxon Mobil, ordered the company to turn over documents to the AG's Office, Healy's press statement noted.
