No one, including the state or cities, should be above the law.

Attached is the decision wherein the First Circuit Court of Appeals held that the City of Mandeville is not only responsible for damage to a homeowner's property caused by improper drainage installation, but also required to perform remedial work on the homeowner's property to prevent future damage. The significance of this case cannot be understated: It demonstrates that municipalities are not above the law, and can be held to account for the damage caused by improperly performed public works projects.
