“Rick Snyder Reinstated as Defendant in Flint Water Class Action Lawsuit,” WDIV ClickOn Detroit
April 01, 2019
In late 2018, Flint residents asked U.S. District Court Judge Judith Levy to reconsider her decision removing Snyder as a defendant. In her ruling Monday, Judge Levy noted that “the allegations plausibly describe ‘conscience shocking’ conduct.”
"We are grateful that the Court agrees former Governor Snyder should be held accountable for his role in the Flint water crisis,” said Theodore J. Leopold, Partner atCohen Milstein Sellers & Toll and co-lead Plaintiffs’ attorney. “The citizens of Flint were both forgotten and mistreated by those involved in the Flint water disaster. To this day, residents continue to suffer because of the reckless decisions of senior state and local officials, as well as private contractors, and we hope to provide a measure of justice and some much-needed relief to those still struggling to recover."
