  Supreme Court allows climate change scientist's defamation suit against National Review WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court refused on Monday to shield two conservative writers from being sued for defamation by a climate-change expert whom they accused of having "molested and tortured data in the service of politicized science."

"To those supporters out there, I just want to say I love you," he said, sobbing as he sat down.

Prosecutor Jennifer Buck, of the state attorney general's office, described problems Sandusky has had in state prison, including disputes about returning his meal tray, resistance to being moved from his cell and complaints about phone calls, access to shaving equipment, and not being able to access his computer tablet.

"It's failure to take responsibility, claiming that he is the victim, which is a theme throughout this case, and that it's his rights that are being violated," Buck told the judge.

Sandusky attorney Al Lindsay noted he had recently received several letters that attested to Sandusky's character and to good deeds he has performed. Lindsay also noted that Sandusky spent more than five years in solitary confinement because prison administrators were concerned for his safety.

If Sandusky's assertions of innocence are the truth, he said, it would be "the worst injustice in the history of American jurisprudence."

Buck argued that jurors believed the eight young men who testified against Sandusky, victims she said were sexually assaulted "by someone that they loved, someone that they trusted, someone that betrayed them."

Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a written statement that "justice was again achieved for his victims and they can close this chapter knowing that this predator will remain behind bars for the rest of his life."

Victims said at trial that Sandusky subjected them to a range of abuse, from grooming to violent attacks. A victim advocate read several letters to the judge on Friday from the men who testified at trial or their relatives.

The letters described the effect of their abuse as boys and in the years since, including anxiety, difficulty with family and social relationships and anger about what occurred.

One of them, described as Victim 4 in court records, said he does not forgive Sandusky and spoke of efforts to "attack us as if we had done something wrong."

"We both know exactly what happened," Victim 4 wrote. "You should be ashamed of yourself."

Sandusky's lawyers in October initiated a federal court action seeking a new trial or release from prison.

The university has subsequently paid more than $100 million to people who said they had been abused by Sandusky.
