State Senate Curtails Cuccinelli's Capers;
Limits Subpoena of Academic Research

In response to Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's fishing expedition in U. Va. email servers, the State Senate has voted to limit the powers to subpoena academic research. The Attorney General's investigation has been directed against former professor and climate researcher Michael Mann.

The sponsor of the legislation, Sen. Chap Petersen, D-Fairfax, was quoted saying:
We have numerous legal issues in the commonwealth which requires the attention of the people’s lawyer, the Attorney General. We don’t need him sorting through the trash cans of our university professors in order to foment litigation.
