Monday Must-Read

If you haven't seen it already, here is Nathaniel Rich's New York Times Magazine article on the SLFPA-E lawsuit.

Rich is also the author of this New Republic article about Plaquemines Parish we mentioned last week.

Update: In a related matter,  a judge ruled today that the infamous "kill-the-lawsuit act" passed during the recent legislative session does not actually kill the lawsuit.
And 19th Judicial District Court Judge Janice Clark said from the bench that she's also likely to rule that the law, Act 544, violates the state Constitution's "separation of powers" clause by usurping's the court's power in determining whether or not the levee authority can sue. She said she thinks the law may be unconstitutional for a second reason, but did not name it during the brief court hearing.
