Law360, New York (March 17, 2015, 2:33 PM ET) – Lexington Insurance Co. isn’t required to defend Texas Brine Co. LLC against class allegations that the company created a potentially dangerous sinkhole, because Lexington’s policies expired more than 15 years before the ground collapsed in 2012, the insurer told a Louisiana federal court Monday.

Mar. 10 – The Louisiana Record - Legal watchdog accuses attorneys representing class in Bayou Corne Sinkhole case of charging exorbitant legal fees

“NEW ORLEANS – Attorneys representing residents of Bayou Corne in class action litigation over environmental damage caused by a massive sinkhole in Ascenion Parish are under fire from a local legal watchdog group that alleges they racked up unrealistic and excessive legal fees.

. . . .Court documents show that attorneys representing class counsel in the case documented 8,256 hours of work on the settlement while their assistants and paralegals logged 709 hours. Together, that is a total cost of roughly $1,300 an hour.

The legal fees were granted by the court-appointed special master in the case, A. Shelby Easterly, of Denham Springs-based Easterly Law Office APLC. Easterly lauded the efforts of class counsel claiming they had squeezed over four years of effort into just two years and deserved the fee rate requested.”

OSHA worker injuries
Work injuries and illnesses exact a tremendous toll on society. Despite the decades-old legal requirement that employers provide workplaces free of serious hazards, every year, more than three million workers are seriously injured, and thousands more are killed on the job. The financial and social impacts of these injuries and illnesses are huge, with workers and their families and taxpayer-supported programs paying most of the costs.” New OSHA Report: “Adding Inequality to Injury: The Costs of Failing to Protect Workers on the Jobhttp://www.dol.gov/osha/report/20150304-inequality.pdf

Global ResearchShock: Fracking Used to Inject Nuclear Waste Underground for Decades

“Unearthed articles from the 1960s detail how nuclear waste was buried beneath the Earth’s surface by Halliburton & Co. for decades as a means of disposing the by-products of post-World War II atomic energy production.”

“. . . . Alleged fracking links to the contamination of the public water supply and critical aquifers, as well as ties to earthquake upticks near drilling locations that are otherwise not prone to seismic activity have created uproar in the years since the 2005 Cheney loophole,” which allowed the industry to circumvent the Safe Drinking Water Act by exempting fracking fluids, thus fast tracking shale fracking as a source of cheap natural gas.”

Thurs. News, Boone Dam Snow Melt Fears < UPDATED

See next post for link to map of Lake FUBAR and helicorder link.  Everything still on active mode there.
DOWNarrowSM LA14 showed a big 2 hour long disruption just after 1 a.m. and another 2 hour long session just after 3 a.m..

This comment at Zero Hedge says they wonder what will happen to Boone Dam when all this snow melt comes down the river.

“TVA drew Boone down to below winter pool levels to take some pressure off of the sinkhole/mud geysers, so it only has to hold back something like a 145 ft. wall of water. Which is fine – until the snow pack in the mountains melts in a couple of weeks. Then you have those two rivers with fifteen miles of water in them filling up REALLY fast. The river below the Boone dam will be swollen, too. I don’t think they can just open the floodgates on Boone all the way. So Boone fills up, water migration that caused the sinkholes/mud geysers gets worse, and all of a sudden you have Boone tsunami.” . . . (more)
