This week on the Coastal News Roundup: coastal law. Coastal parishes are suing oil companies, environmental advocates are suing the Army Corps, the Attorney General is also suing the Corps, and there’s been a recent surge in civil lawsuits over the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. It's hard to keep it all straight. It seems that in the struggle to come up with funds to fight coastal land loss, officials are turning to litigation.
WWNO’s Tegan Wendland talked with Chris Dalbom of Tulane’s Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy.
