Lawsuit blames oil companies for loss of wetlands, Katrina damage

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A lawsuit seeks what attorneys say could be billions of dollars from a long list of oil companies for damages to wetlands that would have allegedly softened Hurricane Katrina's blow.

The class-action suit, filed in federal court in Lafayette this week, names as plaintiffs "all persons, businesses and entities in the state of Louisiana who have suffered damages as a result of Hurricane Katrina's winds and storm surge."

At issue are the oil and gas pipeline canals that crisscross the state's coastal areas - canals blamed in part for the loss of coastal marsh, an important hurricane buffer for inland areas.

[Read the rest here. Hat tip: William Page.]


And how many generations of crooked Louisiana politicians have been too busy lining their own pockets to do the things that might have kept Katrina from causing nearly as much damage as it did? When is their day in court?

As always, thank you Greyhawk for the Open Post.
