"The Recent Wave of Coastal Land Loss Litigation" CLE

  • Image 1

Product Description

For decades, mineral development has flourished offshore and in the coastal zones of the Gulf states, most prolifically in Louisiana. But Louisiana’s coastal landscape has changed; the familiar statistic is that a football field’s worth of land is lost to erosion every hour. Over the past two and a half years, suits have been brought against more than 100 energy companies for alleged damage to Louisiana’s coast, seeking billions in purported restoration and flood protection costs. This presentation goes beyond the headlines to explore this new wave of oilfield damage litigation. Who are the parties? What are their claims, theories of recovery, and defenses? Which theories have advanced, and which ones have failed? How have courts ruled on jurisdiction and the merits? What role has politics played?
