The same. Nothing changed. Read the writ app.

Seems to me the State presents a good argument.

The state does have a good argument. If the judgement ultimately goes in the landowners favor it could open the door for much litigation on other bodies of water in the future. However, there is somewhat a precedent for other “lakes” being privately owned in LA.

Not really, this is a pretty unique set of circumstances involving a navigable waterway, a lake, wetlands, a control structure, mineral royalties, both feds and state, and admission date to the union.

There is almost zero possibility this can be used for precedent elsewhere.

re: Catahoula Lake could become off limits to duck hunters
The precedent I was referring to is there are other “lakes” in LA that are privately owned. However, the difference is those lakes were not designated as such in the plats in the BLM as this one was. This is where the states case has legs.

I wasn’t meaning this case would be a precident moving forward, I was saying the prescident already established is there are other lakes that are privately owned. While not the same set of circumstances, it has happened.

re: Catahoula Lake could become off limits to duck hunters
State's writ granted for briefing as to prescription.

My take- one of the State's assignments of error in their writ app was that all claims of the two groups of plaintiff were barred by prescription. i.e. the time to file such a claim is/was over

The claims themselves could be very complicated to analyze. To me, this is the easy way out. The court is saying, "We don't have to determine if the thing is a lake or a river-we don't have to second guess the trial court's damage award. We find the claims of all plaintiffs are prescribed-case dismissed at plaintiff's cost"

So does that mean they will probably dismiss the case because time ran out and rule in favor of the state?

Probably. It just doesn't seem likely that they would go through the trouble of granting the writ for briefing to just affirm. They could have just said, writ denied, if they were going to leave it alone. Not granting the writ for the other assignments of error points to this as well.

Supreme Court argument scheduled for September 4. I have no idea how long a wait we have after that for a decision.

re: Catahoula Lake could become off limits to duck hunters
I have not been keeping up with this situation, whats the latest?

My dad is from Jena and I grew up with a camp on Little River and used to hunt the banks out of a floating blind for many years, as well as catching tons of white perch during the summers. The hunting out there has been absolute garbage with the flood gates screwing up the water level, but will be very sad if they ban public hunting on the lake, as I have made some of my best memories out there.

Even that is not clear. That's how bad the original decision was. If the State took it, it can't be private.

It's all going to be reversed anyway.

re: Catahoula Lake could become off limits to duck hunters
That's my prediction. I just don't see why they would grant the writ for briefing and argument on that one limited issue (there were multiple assignments of error) only to say ...we affirm both lower Court's holdings in prescription. I mean, it could happen obviously. It just doesn't make sense. If I were on the plaintiff's side, I'd be working like hell on a settlement.

Probably a month or so before the opinion is released.
