A federal judge has dismissed a Koch Industries lawsuit against a group of anonymous climate change activists known as Youth for Climate Truth who last year issued a hoax press release announcing the famed climate change deniers had reversed themselves. The prank statement said Koch had realized "principled behavior" was "the only way a business can survive and prosper," a pretty clear tip-off.

"This lawsuit was a well-financed attempt by Koch to bully its political opponents into submission...This important precedent will prevent future lawsuits aimed at stifling political speech." - the activists' lawyer
