The Louisiana CPRA voted last week to move forward with ligitation against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for their damages to vast swath of protective wetlands around a shipping channel, the MR-GO, which was found to have been neglected by the Corps, and found to be a major cause of the flooding of New Orleans in 2005.

Garret Graves, Steve Wilson, and author John Barry comment on the suit, and how it complements and potentially conflicts with a suit filed by John Barry and the New Orleans Protection Authority against 97 oil and gas companies, a suit defended by the ousted Barry and his non-profit, Restore Louisiana Now.
