A New Way to Ignore The Law -- Don't Open Email from the Agency

The New York Times reports today that the White House  told the EPA that it would simply not open emails detailing the agency's response to the Supreme Court's decision in Massachusetts v. EPA, which required the agency to act under the Clean Air Act to treat greenhouse gasses as pollutants.  According to the article the EPA eventually watered down its proposed response (presumably the White House opened that email communication).  Maybe other administrations have operated in this kind of way, but this sure seems like a hell of a way to run a bureaucracy.
