Louisiana Supreme Court Denies Request for Rehearing

The Louisiana Supreme Court has denied the request for rehearing in the recent STATE OF LOUISIANA AND THE VERMILION PARISH SCHOOL BOARD v. THE LOUISIANA LAND AND EXPLORATION COMPANY, ET AL. case.  This was the legacy lawsuit in which the court allowed additional remediation damages when the lease had no “express contractual provision” allowing such damages.  The court allowed these excess damages to be awarded to the plaintiff without being placed in the registry of the court.
