"Climate Activists Fight Back Against Exxon's Subpoenas"

"The oil giant, seemingly emboldened by a federal judge's ruling it can poke into a state AG's investigation, wants 350.org's records, too. The group is refusing."

"In its continuing offensive to beat back investigations of possible climate fraud, ExxonMobil is now engaged in a fight with several environmental advocacy groups as it demands to see their records.

Exxon, in carrying out discovery in litigation about probes of its record, hit at least seven non-governmental organizations and individuals with subpoenas last month.

The subpoenas demanded documents and communications that could reveal behind-the-scenes involvement the organizations had with state attorneys general investigating or contemplating investigations of Exxon."
