Exxon Adds New York to Suit in Bid to Stop Climate Change Probe

  • Schneiderman accused in suit of politically motivated probe
  • Exxon investigated over whether it hid impacts from investors

Exxon Mobil Corp. sued New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to stop his investigation into what the company knew about climate change.

The oil giant on Thursday revised a lawsuit it filed in June against Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey. U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade in Texas ruled Thursday that the company could add New York to the case.
