US Judge Dismisses Exxon Mobil Lawsuit to Stop Climate Change Probes

A federal judge on Thursday dismissed Exxon Mobil Corp’s lawsuit seeking to stop New York and Massachusetts from probing whether the company misled investors and the public about climate change and the potential effects on its business.

U.S. District Judge Valerie Caproni in Manhattan said Exxon Mobil’s allegations that New York’s and Massachusetts’ attorneys general, Eric Schneiderman and Maura Healey, were pursuing bad faith probes in order to violate its constitutional rights were “implausible.”

Caproni dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice, meaning Exxon Mobil cannot bring it again.
