Virginia Supreme Court Slams the Door on Cuccinelli’s UVA Climate Change Investigation

As reported in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Virginia Supreme Court today rebuffed Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s civil investigative demands for documents related to grants a UVA professor receive to study global warming. On the technical side, the court ruled that the university is not “a person” under the specific law by which he sought to obtain the information.

Hmm. Maybe Del. Bob Marshall’s “personhood” bill should be amended to include universities as well as zygotes.
