ILR COO Says Louisiana Erosion Lawsuits “Miss Their Intended Purpose Completely”: U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) Chief Operating Officer Harold Kim said lawsuits filed by private lawyers on behalf of local Louisiana governments over coastal erosion “miss their intended purpose completely” because the “lawyers will get paid first, the residents bear the cost burden, and the alleged problem they purport to be fixing will go unsolved.” ILR released a research paper on these lawsuits yesterday that detail their history and their potential outcomes.
