Former Washington State Attorney General Speaks Out Against Climate Lawsuits

Ken Eikenberry, former Washington state attorney general, published an opinion editorial in the Dallas Morning News, detailing how environmental activists, deep-pocketed donors, trial lawyers and ambitious politicians have targeted the energy industry a tightly coordinated campaign.

Eikenberry notes, “The narrative of an organic movement of environmental defenders taking on Big Oil has been depicted by some as a David-versus-Goliath showdown. But as more and more facts emerge, it is becoming increasingly clear that Exxon has been unfairly maligned by a group of activists and lawyers driven by politics but bereft of facts. As documents on show, and about which forthcoming records will leave no room for doubt.”
