One fight won but the battle continues

Posted: Updated:

Those with the group Save Lake Peigneur are celebrating, after a judge agreed to move their lawsuit forward.

If you recall that group filed a lawsuit against the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) alleging they violated the Louisiana constitution by issuing a coastal use permit for a project to create two new natural gas storage caverns in the Jefferson Island salt dome, underneath Lake Peigneur.

Monday, 16th District Court Judge Keith Comeaux ruled to allow that lawsuit to be heard. But one member from the group Save Lake Peigneur admits this fight is far from over. Verlie Langlinais says she doesn't believe the DNR will stop fighting them. She thinks if the DNR put more effort in working with the people and stopped spending all that money to fight them, maybe they would have come to an agreement a long time ago.

The group will be back in court October 10th to set a new date for their lawsuit to be heard.  We will keep you posted with updates as they come.
