Albemarle County Circuit Judge Paul Peatross announced Friday he would decide in ten days the University of Virginia’s court challenge to civil investigative demands issued by Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli seeking documents related to climate change research.
As reported by The Daily Progress, the judge heard oral arguments Friday afternoon. Cuccinelli’s office followed with a statement defending its position. “This office has far exceeded the statutory standard required to execute this demand for documents,” read the news release.
