Judge Orders Exxon to Turn Over Tillerson's 'Wayne Tracker' Climate Emails

"A deadline of March 31 is set for Tillerson's alias emails to be given to New York's attorney general, along with an explanation why they were withheld."

"Exxon officials have been ordered by a New York judge to explain how the company overlooked a shadow email account used by its former chief executive Rex Tillerson while the company was under subpoena by the New York attorney general's office.

Judge Barry Ostrager ordered Exxon to provide sworn affidavits describing the company's process for identifying and turning over documents. He also demanded an explanation of what documents may have been lost and how that happened.

Ostrager also gave the company until March 31 to surrender documents associated with Tillerson, now serving as secretary of state, and five other members of Exxon's management committee."
