Federal Judge Dismisses Flint Residents' $150 Million Class-Action Lawsuit
A federal judge in Detroit has dismissed a $150 million class-action lawsuit filed by Flint residents and one Flint business, suggesting the plaintiffs refile in a Michigan state court due to lack of jurisdiction.
In a decision issued today, Judge John Corbett O'Meara said because the plaintiffs didn't file a claim under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act, the case should be tried in state court.
The case sought $150 million in damages for all Flint residents who paid water bills between April 2014 and November 2015. It also sought compensation to replace all waterlines damaged in every Flint home, according to a complaint filed on Jan. 31.
The lawsuit was filed against the city of Flint, the state of Michigan and several key players in the Flint water crisis, including former Mayor Dayne Walling, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, former Emergency Managers Darnell Earley and Gerald Ambrose, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
