NY Post: Underwood’s Exxon probe is doomed to fail

The New York Post published an op-ed from LRANY’s Public Affairs Manager Adam Morey about the baseless lawsuit filed by New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood against Exxon Mobil for allegedly defrauding investors.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood launched a desperate bid to salvage her predecessor’s failed three-year fishing expedition by filing suit against ExxonMobil in Manhattan Supreme Court. Talk about a stretch: It’s hard to understand even what wrongdoing Underwood is alleging, never mind how she can prove it.

Why would Underwood file such a weak case? Well, aside from any residual loyalty to Schneiderman or colleagues who worked on the probe, and aside from any ideological motivation of her own, there may be something else driving her action: She’s being pushed by outside lawyers.
