Va. Supreme Court Says UVA And Mann Split Damages From Legal Battle

The Commonwealth’s highest court has ordered a Washington-based nonprofit to pay $250 in damages to the University of Virginia and long ago professor Michael Mann. The Virginia Supreme Court issued its order this spring after a prolonged tug-of-war over Mann’s emails dealing with his research. The Virginia Supreme Court did not explain why it wants the Energy & Environment Legal Institute to shell out $250, which is to be split between UVA and Mann. Mann (pictured) taught at UVA from 1999 until 2005, and former Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli had accused the current Penn State professor of manipulating the data. Cuccinelli used the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act to go after Mann in 2010, and the nonprofit group sued UVA when it did not comply with its Freedom of Information Act requests for Mann’s emails.
