Elsie Law's Daily Dose Of The Law

[SIDEBAR: I caught wind of the following article from a twitter posting.]

According to the LA Times, a recent court ruling found that the United States' Army Corps of Engineers displayed 'gross negligence' when it came to maintaining the leeves in New Orleans. A federal judge stated that the negligence contributed to the breaking of the levees during Hurricane Katrina.

The aforementioned ruling could potentially leave the American government liable to pay out billions of dollars in damages.
