New Orleans CityBusiness: “Opinion: Jindal undermines energy in levee board attack”

New Orleans CityBusiness published an editorial in which the author makes a compelling argument for the constitutional necessity of allowing the courts to decide the liability of oil and gas companies in the landmark litigation filed by Jones Swanson on behalf of the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority – East (SLFPA-E), a lawsuit which seeks restoration of the critical environmental buffer zone that protects southeastern Louisiana against catastrophic flooding. Indeed, concluding the article, the author writes, “The judicial branch – not the executive or legislative – is best suited and constitutionally ordered to address the dispute between the flood authority and the energy sector. Any interference from the governor or lawmakers is not only undermining the energy industry’s stance, it is legally questionable.” Read the full article here.
