Documents obtained by a non-profit legal group allegedly reveal that more than a dozen U.S. attorney generals agreed to keep details of probes into energy firms secret.
The Energy and Environment Legal Institute said Thursday that it has obtained a copy of a “Common Interest Agreement” signed by 17 state and territorial attorneys generals earlier this year that was designed to keep the probes under wraps.
E&E Legal said the agreement was spearheaded by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman “clearly drafted to obstruct open-records requests, while these AGs carried out a political campaign against their critics.”
