Live blog: Lawyers suing oil & gas industry to appear before Jindal's CPRA Koch Suckers ~Bob Marshall, The Lens 
~The Lens will live-blog what could be a wetlands’ version of “High Noon” at Wednesday’s meeting of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority. Attorneys for the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East say they have accepted an invitation from coastal chief Koch Sucker Garret Graves to present their client’s case for its controversial lawsuit against oil and gas companies for coastal land loss – which Graves strongly opposes.

Dear Editilla,

Opposition to the Big Oil Lawsuit has not been quashed yet.

At the last meeting in December, members of the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East were criticized for filing this historic lawsuit. The suit demands that the oil and gas industry fix the damage it caused to our coast.

We need to show the SLFPA-E board members that we are still here in strong support.

It is critical that we continue to show our support for the Big Oil Lawsuit. #SLFPAElawsuit
WHAT: Board Meeting
WHEN: Thursday, January 16th, 9:30 AM
WHERE: 2nd Floor Council Chambers, Joseph Yenni Bldg,
1221 Elmwood Park Blvd., Harahan, LA.

Please join me on Thursday morning. I'll meet you at the door and give you a big lapel button.

Thank you for your support. With your help, we are winning.
