re: Old man river on the rise
There are equity clubs that don’t flood as much as those along the River.
I crossed at Vicksburg yesterday and there wasn’t much dry land inside the levee.

If that's ever a success I wonder if it would set a precedent for a private land owner to seek damages as well.


Already in motion. For interesting reading see AR game and fish vs USCOE, docket 11-597.

I don't get why this triggers so many people.

Say you build your house on the high side of a creek that has a wide floodplain on the opposite side. When in a high water event the creek just overflows onto the floodplain. Now say the government decides they don't want the floodplain to flood so they build a levee to contain the creek. Now in a high water event the water can't go wide so it goes up, up into the house that was fine before the levee was ever built.

I'd say the homeowner has a claim there.

I’m not triggered, but good luck suing the Feds.

Also, would you, as a hypothetical atty, take this fight on a contingent fee basis??

We will regret building the Ms river levees. The cost when it does what rivers do will be a million fold vs if we had not tried to contain it.

Suit has already been filed involving 200,000 + acres. The very respected law firms took it on contingent fee basis.

Rising Tide, great book about why and how. End of the day typical political BS, egos and personal gain from different powers to be. Thing that stuck out to me is how circa original viewing of river by Spanish explorers, Indians told them that every 14 years the rivers flood plain was 15 miles both east and west. Trying to tame that, woof!

So where does this stand currently? I read a news article where the US offered 13MM settlement in 8/2012 but AGFC declined. thx.

This part of the MS Sect. 16 deal - private landowners now piggybacking?
