Court documents show that the attorney general involved in a year-long probe targeting ExxonMobil’s climate records used a private email address to conduct official business.
Conservative legal group Energy and Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) explained in court documents Friday that New York AG Eric Schneiderman submitted a privilege log of correspondence containing the email account. A judge recognized the account was used after a private review of the log.
“The record reveals that the respondents [the NY AG’s office] took great pains to hide the true facts of the Attorney General’s use of private email addresses in an effort to stave off a court-ordered supplemental search,” the document notes.
