John Barry, author of Rising Tide will speak on "Suing Exxon" at our January 23, 2014 general meeting. Until recently he was the Vice-Chair of the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority East. The Authority initiated a suit against 97 oil and gas companies for damaging wetlands in the Authority tri-parish area of Saint Bernard, Orleans, and Jefferson Parishes east of the Mississippi River. Mr. Barry was recently removed from the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority East. The location for the program has not been determined. Check back here after December 5.
