Re: “Can the levee board suit survive?

Dear Canvasback,
The AG has determined that the Levee Authority can legally file suit, and a judge ruled that the AG acted appropriately.
Regarding the parish lawsuits, it's my understanding that they are far more limited in scope than the one filed by SLFPAEast against 97 oil, gas and pipeline companies.

Re: “Can the levee board suit survive?

Louisiana was the first state in the nation to create levee boards like the SLFPA East and West. No other state has followed suit. While in 2007, California passed a law requiring professionals with expertise on their levee boards, no state has regional flood protection boards with an associated nominating committee. In a sense, the Authorities and their nominating committee are living in the Wild West.

Re: “Briggs’ pathetic performance

A pro-oil industry journal has responded to Don Brigg's testimony by saying, basically, "well of course the LOGA president cannot actually name any companies! It should be obvious!"

As soon as I find the link, I will post it.

Re: “Briggs’ pathetic performance

Just because lots of powerful and/or wealthy people repeat something over and over, that doesn't make it true.

Re: “A quaint anachronism

While there is no credible evidence that the actions of the pre-K Orleans Levee Board were relevant in the August 2005 Flood, Louisiana was, nonetheless, the first state in the nation to create a new paradigm of levee board governance. California followed suit, but requires only four of its nine levee board members to have expertise in flood control.
