“Federal Appeals Court Upholds Ruling That Snyder & Other Officials to Remain in Flint Water Lawsuit,” ABC
May 26, 2020
A federal appeals court upheld a ruling that reinstated former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and other state officials in the class action lawsuit over the Flint Water Crisis.
The judges of the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the 2019 ruling from U.S. District Court Judge Judith Levy that reinstated Snyder and nearly all other officials.
"This is yet another step on the long road to justice,” said Theodore J. Leopold, Partner at Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll and co-lead Plaintiffs’ attorney. “We have fought for justice for the citizens of Flint and defeated the State at every turn. To this day, residents continue to suffer because of the reckless decisions of former Governor Snyder and others, and we hope to provide a measure of justice and some much-needed relief to those still struggling to recover."
