Louisiana court allows pipeline construction project to continue

An appellate court in Louisiana has permitted the construction of a pipeline through the state's wetlands to proceed. The lawsuit began in 2017 and claimed that the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources improperly granted a permit for the "Bayou Bridge Pipeline" project, claiming the project would affect protected wetlands and lacked a proper emergency evacuation route. The district court agreed with the plaintiffs, and halted work on the project until the appellate court issued a decision.

Construction law governs the process of subcontracting

Construction projects in Baton Rouge are often overseen by a general contractor. However, because the nature of these projects are so complex, general contractors often form agreements with subcontractors who will perform specific tasks. The subcontractor reports to the general contractor while the general contractor will still be ultimately responsible for seeing that the project is completed on time and in the manner agreed upon.
