Another Confirmation for Defendants in Louisiana Legacy Lawsuits

While oil and gas company-defendants—and several courts alike—have deemed the applicability of the subsequent purchaser doctrine to mineral leases a settled issue of law, plaintiff-landowners have continued to argue otherwise.  A landowner in a recent Louisiana legacy lawsuit filed a Supreme Court writ application challenging a dismissal based upon the subsequent purchaser doctrine.  On February 18, the Supreme Court denied the writ application, maintaining in force the dismissal of all claims against defendants BP America Production Company and BHP Billiton Petroleum (Americas), Inc.  Liskow lawyers Kelly Becker, Katie Roth, and Kathryn Gonski served as appellate counsel.   


A Win for Louisiana Taxpayers

On December 5, 2018, the Louisiana Supreme Court ruled in favor of Louisiana taxpayers confirming a lower court ruling that Act 109, legislation amending La. R.S. 47:33, a state income tax statute that provides a credit to taxpayers for income taxes paid in other states, is unconstitutional. Liskow handled this litigation for the taxpayers from the ruling of the Nineteenth Judicial District Court for the Parish of East Baton Rouge through the Louisiana Supreme Court decision confirming that Act 109 discriminates against interstate commerce in violation of the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.

Bisso Marine

Located on the bank of the Mississippi River since 1853, the Bisso family has long been a part of the American maritime and offshore oilfield history. The story began in the 1870's when Joseph Bisso constructed handmade wooden rowboats to ferry passengers and commodities across the Mississippi River in New Orleans.
