Reuters reports the Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from ExxonMobil over a Massachusetts court ruling that it hand over documents related to the company's efforts to not just hide evidence of climate change but to discredit the science involved.
ExxonMobil had argued that state Attorney General Maura Healey was exceeding the bounds of the state consumer-protection law in demanding the documents. The Supreme Court's decision not to hear the case lets stand a Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruling that Healey had the right to see them.
