YOUR TURN: Walker and Denham Springs lawsuit

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

This week’s Your Turn segment goes to Judith Sibley. Sibley and many other people reacted on our Facebook page this week to the story about the cities of Walker and Denham Springs suing the state over the concrete wall on the Interstate. Some city leaders believe the wall contributed to more flooding in their communities. Some people support the lawsuit, but others like Sibley think it’s a mistake. In her words:

It was an act of nature. Concrete wall or not, it's like New Orleans. It was unavoidable. Flooding would have occurred anyway. People, please stop being so "sue happy" and lining the attorneys' pockets. All you're doing is making the lawyers rich and bankrupting our State. Enough already. If you don’t like it, move to higher ground. I'm sure you'll find something wrong there as well.

That’s Judith Sibley’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
