Army Corps of Engineers Ruled Not Liable for Katrina Damage 

On Sept. 25, a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that U.S. Army Corps of Engineers could not be held liable for the billions of dollars in damage caused by Hurricane Katrina. The decision overturned a ruling in March that found the Corps responsible for errors in its assessment and maintenance of critical levees that failed during the storm.
