Judge Orders U.Va. to Release Researcher's Documents

 A state judge has ordered the University of Virginia to release documents
produced by Michael Mann, who formerly taught there, to a conservative
foundation requesting them as open records, *The Washington
Examiner*<http://washingtonexaminer.com/local/virginia/2011/05/judge-orders-uva-release-climate-documents>reported.
Mann is a climate researcher whose work is consistent with the scientific
consensus on climate change, but who is doubted by some conservatives. In an
e-mail, Mann said: "I think it's very unfortunate that fossil fuel
industry-funded climate change deniers ... continue to harass U.Va., NASA,
and other leading academic and scientific institutions with these frivolous
attacks."
