Another court ruling in the Michael Mann global warming case. It’s a setback for a conservative group.The Virginia Supreme Court has ruled that Mann’s emails are exempt from the Freedom of Information Act. The American Tradition Institute wanted to see the emails from Mann, a former UVA environmental sciences professor.
