Court Verdict for the University in Virginia

Court Verdict for the University in Virginia

As per recent reports, it has come to light that on Friday the Virginia Supreme Court gave its verdict that Kenneth T. Cuccinelli, the attorney general of the state, holds nothing in terms of authority when it comes to demanding information and other vital credentials of grant application or e-mail which were delivered by a climatologist working at the University of Virginia.

Since long, the attorney general is seeking e-mails sent by the climate expert, by making claims that he is full of suspicions regarding the point that Dr. Mann made use of a fraudulent data on climate for the evil sake of securing funding. A lower court, in this regard, earlier turned down his plea over statements that Mr. Cuccinelli provided nothing in terms of back up papers for his allegation.

Ever since 2010, Mr. Cuccinelli has been in a hunt of forcing the university of Virginia to provide him the documents containing vital data related to the five grant applications which were sent by the climate scientist, Michael E. Mann.

While expressing his opinion regarding the court order, along with mentioning what all can be done in order to reach a suitable plot that address the matter of the so-called fraud to good effect, Mr. Cuccinelli claimed in a dialogue significant of the verdict: “Today, the court effectively held that state agencies do not have to provide state-owned property to state investigators looking into potential fraud involving government funds”.

On the other hand, it is nothing new for the creator of an important research which charted an evident increase in worldwide temperatures, Dr. Mann, who had long been in the line of fire of various climate change cynics such as Mr. Cuccinelli.
