Michael Mann Brief Lays Out Climate Change Defamation Theory – Climate Science Watch

climate change defamation

 

In a brief filed today in the DC Court of Appeals as part of his defamation lawsuit against the National Review and the Competitive Enterprise Institute, Michael Mann once again argued his case and requested that the Court proceed to adjudicate the merits of Defendants’ appeal of the trial court’s denial of their motion to dismiss. The stated intention of Dr. Mann’s request is to expedite moving to trial on a case that has been long-delayed in procedural tangles.

This climate change defamation case has been an interesting one to follow. It was falsely assumed by many that the suit would not survive an anti-SLAPP motion because it is based on a dispute over global warming, and that is a hotly-debated issue. However, the anti-SLAPP motion failed because the defamation arises from the claim that the research was conducted fraudulently. That is an allegation that can be proven true or false, and therefore is not opinion.
