Judge dismisses Taylor Energy lawsuit against company cleaning up its oil leak BY TRISTAN BAURICK | STAFF WRITER SEP 1, 2020 - 8:00 AM
A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by Taylor Energy against the Belle Chasse contractor the federal government hired to clean up Taylor’s long-running oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.
U.S. District Court Judge Judge Greg Guidry ruled on Aug. 21 that contractor Couvillion Group has legal immunity while performing work ordered by the federal government. …
Taylor is also suing the Coast Guard over its order for the New Orleans oil company to halt what had become one of the largest and longest-running oil disasters in U.S. history.
After Taylor challenged the order, the Coast Guard hired Couvillion to do the job. …
Taylor’s lawsuit against Couvillion asserted the contractor had no authority to conduct work at its well site. (Thought they refuse to do anything about the leak. They also report the leak at about 2 gallons a day, when a thousand is being currently harvested from the leak.)
“Given Taylor Energy’s responsibility to contain the spill and failure to meet this responsibility for more than 15 years, Taylor Energy’s claims against Couvillion represented nothing more than another effort to shirk its obligations," a Couvillion spokesperson said.

But nothing is to be done about the utter malicious stupid disregard for our biosphere and the fact that it’s our freak’n life support system we are destroying. This is what happens when profits, power and gluttony, blinds human rationality and creates psychopaths out of sociopaths.
