Mann vs. National Review and CEI pleadings. You gotta read at least the first few pages! Awesome!

from Eli Rabett at Rabett Run, January 20, 2013

As promised, here are Michael Mann's (well, his lawyers') responses to pleadings for dismissal by CEI and National Review:

Opposition to National Review Motion to Dismiss
Opposition to CEI Motion to Dismiss 

John Mashey and Deep Climate get a footnote:
30. John R. Mashey, “Strange Scholarship in the Wegman Report (SSWR): A Façade for the Climate Anti-Campaign”, available
The motions to dismiss:
For Failure to State a Claim
Under the DC Anti-SLAPP Act

If you only have to read one (they are repetitive and actually bunnies don't HAVE to read any) the CEI one has a bit more information:

Most legal pleadings are as dry as sawdust -- not this one.

One of my favorite excerpts (so far): 
Rather than defending the falsity of their words, because they cannot, Defendants attempt to hide behind the “opinion defense’’—the last bastion of the apprehended liar. 

I suspect that the last time that a plaintiff's legal team had so much fun was Kitzmiller v. Dover.

This definitely rates a solid 4 out of 5 bags of popcorn on the popcorn-o-meter.
