The federal government is seeking to overturn a 2009 ruling that found the Army Corps of Engineers responsible for massive flooding after Hurricane Katrina because it failed to properly maintain a navigation channel.
An appeal of a landmark ruling by U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval is scheduled to be heard Wednesday by a panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
