Louisiana sinkhole update: Hollywood at Bayou Corne: Erin Brockovich gets involved with Assumption sinkhole

Air is becoming thinner for Texas Brine, the company thought to be the cause of the Louisiana sinkhole!

Indeed, a group of Assumption Parish residents fighting for their living rights and homes in the Bayou Corne area hired environmental activist Erin Brockovich and a California attorney (Thomas V. Girardi) to discuss their legal options. They will attend a community meeting Saturday at the American Legion Hall to answer residents’ questions.

Girardi is well known. He already worked with Brockovich in a groundwater pollution case in Hinkley, California and helped secure a $333 million settlement for 650 residents. The movie “Erin Brockovich” featuring Julia Roberts as Brockovich presented the case. – Nola

I Hope this will result in something big for you, residents of the Louisiana sinkhole! I hope you will get much more attention about the problems and the environmental disasters you are facing! Keep fighting and you will finally win!

  1. What a great map!
    Can’t wait for Sat. — The Brockovich team is gathering their own samples while they are there for lab testing. Not by DEQ I’m sure!
