#ExxonKnew Crackdown by Massachusetts and New York AGs Threatens Free Speech
ExxonMobil is now asking a federal appeals court for relief from a never ending and overreaching investigation led by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey and New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood, who accuse the company of misleading investors on the risks of climate change. The investigation was initiated several years ago, directly after the Attorneys General met with anti-fossil fuel activists whose goal is to “delegitimize Exxon as a political actor.”
In its latest filing, ExxonMobil shows how the investigation has implications for every company’s ability to speak freely without retribution from politically motivated government investigations.
