Coastal News Roundup: Lawsuits End, Settlements Reached

Nov 5, 2017

This week on the Coastal News Roundup: legal stuff!

A local levee board's lawsuit against more than 90 oil and gas companies ends after bouncing around in the courts for several years. Plus, the EPA, the federal Department of Justice, and the State of Louisiana reach a settlement with Exxon Mobil, after claiming Exxon's facilities violated the Clean Air Act.

Mark Schleifstein from Nola.com | The Times-Picayune's breaks it all down with WWNO's Travis Lux.
