REPRESENTATIVE CASES

Southern Environmental Management and Specialties, Inc. v. City of New Orleans, 339 So. 3d 1234 (La. App. 4 Cir. 2022). The firm represented a surety that issued a statutory payment bond under the Louisiana Public Works Act. The payment bond claimant alleged that the surety adjusted the payment bond claim in bad faith under the Louisiana Insurance Code. The appellate court upheld the trial court’s granting of summary judgment in favor of the surety, holding that Louisiana Public Works Act payment bond sureties are immune from Louisiana Insurance Code penalties as a matter of law.
