On June 15, 2016, attorneys for ExxonMobil filed a “Complaint for Declaratory and Injunctive Relief” against Maura Healey, the attorney general of the state of Massachusetts. Healey is among the 17 state attorneys general who are part of AGs United for Clean Power, who are using the power of their offices to issue sweeping subpoenas against ExxonMobil and scores of individuals and organizations who corresponded with the company about climate change.

Click the link above to read ExxonMobil’s complaint, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division. Exxon states that it “seeks an injunction barring the enforcement of a civil investigative demand to ExxonMobil, and a declaration that the civil investigative demand violates ExxonMobil’s rights under state and federal law.”
