In Louisiana, a trespass is an unauthorized use of a person's property by another. If the trespasser makes a profit from the trespass, then he runs the risk of being forced to give up his profits made as a result of the trespass. This is because private property rights enjoy fundamental and sweeping constitutional protection. And because trespass can only be deterred by making the business risk of being caught too high for a company to risk. No matter how much property you own, you have the right to be free of unlawful trespasses upon and takings of your land. I have specialized in trespass law since 2015.
