Paxton Drops Challenge as Exxon Mobil Probe Shifts says the Texas Tribune – strangely, Inside Climate News, normally so fascinated by Exxon related legal matters, doesn’t seem to have covered it. The Washington Times offers Climate change prosecutors suffer setback as AG pulls Exxon subpoena, which appears to be much the same thing.
Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude E. Walker agreed Wednesday to withdraw his climate-related subpoena of ExxonMobil, a stunning reversal that delivered a blow to the Democratic-led effort to prosecute climate change dissent.
And so on. I just thought I’d mention it, since I haven’t seen any of the Usual Suspects covering it. Of course the VIAG claim was always the least plausible and most opportunistically me-too of all the challenges, so its not too surprising he has wimped out at the first sign of trouble.
