Chris White reports:

At least two confidential documents that SUNY lawyers refused to release earlier this year were leaked as part of thousands hacked from a top climate research center last month.

The documents were made available by independent researcher Douglas Keenan.

In August 2007, Keenan wrote a paper accusing UAlbany Professor Wei-Chyung Wang of fabrications in research. A university panel later cleared Wang of those allegations, but refused to release any more documentation of the case than a redacted committee report — the confidential complete version of which stepped off a review by an Investigation Committee.

The university denied Keenan’s Freedom of Information Law requests for a full version of the initial committee report and the full investigation report, according to written and e-mail correspondence provided by Keenan.
