A few more thoughts on the case from Will Bates.

The latest over at Mark Steyn’s place: “So the net result of Mann vs Simberg is that Mann owes Simberg $8,587.64. Pay up, you deadbeat.”

The battle between skeptics and climate “dictators“: “Skepticism is a necessary aspect of the scientific discovery process.

Judy did testify, but only as a fact witness, not an expert witness.
