Jorge-Chavelas v. Louisiana Farm Bureau Casualty Insurance Co., 18-30388

Held that a sugarcane farm had no statutory immunity from a tort lawsuit brought by two injured cane planters. Louisiana workers' compensation laws did not grant immunity from suit here because the planters were an independent contractor's employees. Affirmed a bench trial judgment in favor of the employees.
