Can we get an update on Laurel Ridge Levee extension litigation?

EA Drainage Board Chair Dempsey Lambert

Appearing on tonight’s EA Drainage meeting agenda is:

Executive Session – Discussion of Litigation

“Parish of Livingston, et al. v. State of Louisiana, et al., Suit No. 669704 19th Judicial District Court, Parish of East Baton Rouge, State of Louisiana.”

We have yet to hear a public discussion or update about this important issue.  What would you expect from the EA Drainage Board which is delaying a Floodplain Management plan (already finished by HNTB engineers by the way) to accommodate an ill-conceived courthouse to be built in the City of Gonzales?
