The city of Flint and defendants in the Flint Water Crisis lawsuit have decided to increase the settlement for financial relief to $641.2 million. The settlement must now go through review as part of a motion for preliminary approval.
“We are pleased that we are able to take another step towards providing the Flint community and residents a measure of justice. While this can never undo the damage that has been done, it is essential that those who are responsible for the reckless behavior that led to this crisis are held accountable. We will continue to seek justice against the remaining defendants and continue our advocacy on behalf of Flint residents,” said Ted Leopold, court-appointed co-lead counsel and Partner at Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll.
