Louisiana Residents Notified that their Hurricane Katrina, Rita Claims are Denied

Over 500,000 Louisiana residents and business owners filed claims for trillions of dollars of damages against the Army Corps of Engineers for the failure of the levee systems during Hurricanes Rita and Katrina. The levees were designed and built by the Army Corps of Engineers.
Earl H. Stockdale, chief counsel for the corps, told the Louisiana residents in a letter that their claims were denied. He said, “The United States is immune from personal injury, property damage, and wrongful death claims resulting from the exercise or performance or the failure to exercise or perform a discretionary function or duty…the United States is also immune from damages from floodwaters.” This immunity comes from the Flood Control Act of 1928, and protects the Army Corps of Engineers no matter how negligent it may have been in constructing and designing the levees.

Those dissatisfied with the judgment are allowed to file suit in a United States District Court no later than six months from the mailing of the letter. For suits like this, it is wise to use an experienced and aggressive lawyer to represent your claim.
