Cameron Parish, LA, has filed 11 lawsuits against about 200 oil/natural gas companies alleging liability for damage to Louisiana coastal wetlands. Similar lawsuits by Jefferson Parish are pending; however, Plaquemines Parish has dropped its lawsuits (see Daily GPINov. 13, 2015). "This has become a pattern in our state," said Don Briggs, president of the Louisiana Oil & Gas Association. "File large-scale egregious lawsuits that try to strain as many dollars as possible off the backs of the hardworking men and women of the oil and gas industry."
