A mail out
regarding lawsuits against oil
and gas companies is being sent
to Lafourche Parish residents.
This mail out states that
the District Attorney is being
pressured to bypass the
Lafourche Parish Council to file
suit against oil and gas
This is NOT ACCURATE.
“I have not been
contacted by any person or group
urging me to bypass the Council
on this”, said Lafourche
District Attorney Cam Morvant.
“I am the Parish’s legal
advisor not the client.
Any decisions regarding
filing or not filing any
lawsuits involving the parish
are under the exclusive purview
of the parish government”.
