In Energy Policy Advocates v. Ellison, UMLC’s client seeks data which the Attorney General has been hiding from the public. The data relates to AG Ellison allowing a New York University School of Law climate law group funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies to pay for 2 attorneys to work in the AG’s office and bring climate-change and environmental lawsuits against fossil fuel industries and other environmental cases. The case also involves AG Ellison’s communications with other attorneys general around the country related to environmental and climate-change related policy.
