Louisiana flood authority asks Supreme Court to hear oil and gas lawsuit

After losing in lower federal courts, the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East recently asked the U.S. Supreme Court to revive a lawsuit that seeks to hold oil, gas and pipeline companies financially responsible for damage to coastal wetlands.

The lawsuit targets about 80 energy companies, including Exxon Mobile Corp., Chevron and subsidiaries of BP.

New Louisiana Program Connects Energy Contractors with Local Businesses

A new state website has been launched to help Louisiana businesses connect with prime contractors for industrial, petrochemical and coastal restoration projects.

The online portal -- Louisiana Business Connection -- is believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S., and the portal could eventually serve as an example that other states follow.

Louisiana Program Trains Veterans to Start Businesses

Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: Know the Facts

The administration of vaccines is extremely important to public health. In fact, each year in the U.S., 250 million vaccines are administered to protect individuals and the general public from potentially deadly diseases.

While most children and adults who receive vaccines experience no negative side effects, that isn't always the case. With a small fraction of vaccines, injuries occur, although the injuries are usually not due to the vaccine itself, but to the way the shot was administered.

Comprehensive Contract and Litigation Support for Louisiana Businesses

Enforceable legal contracts are the basis of successful business transactions and employment agreements. Contracts are also frequently the subject of litigation.

While it is generally advisable to resolve contract disputes outside of court when possible, an aggressive litigation strategy is needed if resolution cannot be reached through low-conflict negotiation.

Comprehensive Legal Support for Oil and Gas Companies, Producers, Operators and Landowners

If you're in the oil and gas business, whether as an oil company, an independent producer or operator, or a landowner, you know the importance of covering your legal bases if you want to make a profit.

The reality is that what you don't know or anticipate can hurt you.

Breach of Contract Claim? Make Sure It's Trial-Ready.

In many cases, breach of contract disputes can be resolved outside of court through mediation or other methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

However, when the parties find it impossible to reach an agreement through low-conflict negotiation, ADR is likely not the most effective way of protecting business interests, and an aggressive litigation strategy becomes necessary.

Learn More About Compensation for Vaccine-Related Injuries

More than 250 million vaccines are administered each year in the U.S. to guard against potentially deadly diseases. However, a very small fraction of cases result in vaccine-related injuries -- usually not because of the vaccine itself, but because of how the shot is administered.

(For more on that, please see our recent post on SIRVA -- Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration.)

Make no mistake: we need vaccines to protect our children, ourselves and society as a whole. But when vaccine-related injuries occur, victims deserve compensation.
