Returning with an update on how the business of suing undermines Louisiana’s economy, episode six of “Louisiana: the Lawsuit Paradise” takes a look at recent developments in lawsuits against the energy industry.
For years, trial lawyers have filed lawsuits claiming energy industry projects caused damage to the state’s coastal wetlands. Many companies are being sued for work that took place decades ago, before the deterioration even began, or current regulations existed.
This episode gives us a unique look into how these lawsuits are damaging small businesses like Mike Moncla’s, and setting up a trend that could drive good paying jobs out of the state.
“Louisiana: The Lawsuit Paradise” features interviews with small business owners and others who give first-hand accounts about how lawsuits hurt the state’s job creation and growth and force companies to take their business elsewhere.
