Healey’s office says those documents from the 1970s and 1980s suggested that Exxon failed to disclose what it knew to consumers and investors and engaged in a campaign to sow doubts about the science of climate change.
Exxon contends that the documents, published by InsideClimate News and the Los Angeles Times, were not inconsistent with its public positions.
After Healey issued a civil investigative demand for documents in April 2016, Exxon filed a lawsuit challenging the records request and another case in federal court challenging her and Schneiderman’s investigations.
In January, Suffolk County Superior Court Judge Heidi Brieger denied Exxon’s request for an order exempting it from handing over the documents.
