LAFAYETTE, La. - A federal magistrate judge in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana on July 3 ruled that a soil contamination case should be remanded to state court because the defendants did not meet the criteria for having it removed to federal court (Elizabeth R. Creadeur v. Atlantic Richfield Company, No. 14-00695, W.D. La.; 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 91253).
