New York State drives up costs with its frivolous lawsuits

Once again New York State has joined New York City and many other progressive cities in another failed climate change lawsuit.

Our intellectually inferior progressive leadership continues to waste taxpayer money suing oil companies. The Exxon suit, which was based on misleading investors on climate impact, enriched only the corporate attorneys.

This lawsuit damaged Exxon investors by forcing the company to fight a frivolous suit. Courtroom observers that followed this case mentioned how ill prepared the state was after four years of discovery.

After this sounding defeat, our Attorney General issues a press release on defending the citizens of this state against big corporate interests. All she did was increase the cost to operate in New York State. How does that benefit us?
