Report: Activists funded attorneys working in state AG offices to advance climate litigation
Outside sources funded attorneys in numerous attorney general offices across the country in an effort to advance politically inspired climate and environmental litigation, a new report claims.
The report, titled, “Law Enforcement for Rent,” comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C.
In the report, researcher and author Chris Horner alleges that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg started the initiative with a specialized law unit within the New York University School of Law. Under the program, attorneys were reportedly groomed to be dispatched nationally to work on climate issues for state attorneys general.
