Reported Decisions/Slip Opinions:


Reeves Prevails in Louisiana Third Circuit Court of Appeal in D&D Drilling & Exploration, Inc. v. XTO Energy, Inc. et al.

Subject to a successful writ application whereby Reeves' client, James River's, Louisiana Supreme Court writ was granted and remanded to the Third Circuit, the Third Circuit held oral argument on the propriety of venue for this matter. After oral argument and briefing, James River and its co-defendants prevailed, and James River's exception of improper venue was granted by the court of appeal, thereby transferring the case filed by the plaintiff from the plaintiff's home parish to James River's insured's home parish.
