"Courts: D.C. Girds For Exxon Climate Battle"

"The District of Columbia's top lawyer is preparing for a potential courtroom fight against one of the biggest oil companies in the world.

Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl Racine (D) last week revealed plans to hire climate lawyers to focus on an investigation and potential litigation against Exxon Mobil Corp. over the company's public disclosures regarding climate change.

Racine tweeted about the climate team Friday, linking to a D.C. government website with a document that for the first time confirms his office's plans to launch a formal inquiry into Exxon's business practices."
