Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal signed SB 469 into law this morning, June 6, 2014. As previously noted in a previous post, this legislation will end a lawsuit again 97 oil companies for alleged environmental damage.  “This bill will help stop frivolous lawsuits and create a more fair and predictable legal environment, and I am proud to sign it into law,” Jindal stated. “It further improves Louisiana’s legal environment by reducing unnecessary claims that burden businesses so that we can bring even more jobs to our state.” SLFPA-E is expected to challenge the measure in court. Stay posted for further updates.
