There's a debate going on over whether The National Review can survive a defamation lawsuit brought by climate scientist Michael Mann, which was green-lighted last week by a D.C. Superior Court judge after multiple attempts to have the case thrown out.

Mann sued writers at National Review and the conservaitve think tank Competitive Enterprise Institute in 2012 for calling his global warming research fraudulent and comparing him to "the Jerry Sandusky of climate science," adding that "instead of molesting children, he has molested and tortured data."
