Attorneys in a massive Flint water crisis lawsuit recommend that that the preliminary and partial settlement with the state of Michigan be approved by the Flint community and the court.

During a Thursday, August 20 news conference, Interim Class Counsel Michael Pitt said the $600 million partial settlement isn’t perfect, but it’s very good.

“We should never let perfect be the enemy of the good,” Pitt added.

It is still unclear how much money individuals will receive, said Theodore J. Leopold, a partner at Cohen Milstein and co-lead counsel in the Flint case.

“We can’t answer that question now because, although there is a fixed amount of money, depending on how many people participate in the settlement will depend on the amount of money that will be there for individuals,” he said.
