When Trespassing Is In Question
In Louisiana, trespass is the unauthorized use of a person’s property by another. If the trespasser makes a profit from the trespass, they run the risk of being forced to give up the profits made as a result of the trespass. This is because private property rights enjoy fundamental and sweeping constitutional protection. It is also 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 am land use attorney D'Ann Penner and I have focused on trespass law issues, including pipeline trespassing, since 2015.
