The University of Virginia has turned over to a group more than 3,800 pages of documents produced by a former scientist studying climate change.
Media outlets say the American Tradition Institute announced Thursday that U.Va. provided a computer disc containing 3,827 pages to its Environmental Law Center.
The conservative group didn't say what the documents contained.
A Prince William Circuit Court judge had ordered U.Va. in May to supply documents sought by ATI and conservative Del. Robert G. Marshall.
The case is separate from Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's probe into UVa's climate research by Michael Mann, who left Virginia six years ago.
ATI and Cuccinelli both reject the dominant assertion by scientists that decades of heat-trapping carbon gas emissions into the atmosphere have increased the overall temperature of the globe.
