August 8, 2019 on Exxon attempting to pressure witnesses in New York AG climate fraud lawsuit

 “Exxon is polluting these proceedings just like it has polluted our communities.”

New York, NY — In the latest development of the New York State climate fraud lawsuit against ExxonMobil, reports reveal ExxonMobil is attempting to discourage witnesses from testifying against the corporation in court, including a demand to disclose communications they might have had with

In response, May Boeve, Executive Director, offered the following statement:

“Exxon is polluting these proceedings just like it has polluted our communities. While Exxon executives stick to their greedy path of deception and delay, we won’t be intimidated. As communities bear the costs of Exxon’s lies, millions of people led by youth, frontline communities, workers, and more are mobilizing towards the September 20 climate strikes to build a world that works for all of us. We thank New York Attorney General Letitia James for her vigilance in standing up for our communities. Together, all of us will hold accountable fossil fuel executives most responsible for the climate crisis, and make them pay for their climate destruction.”
