Flint Water Settlement

  • For the past 18 months, attorneys from this office – in concert with court-appointed mediators, a special master and the plaintiffs’ attorneys – have been hard at work to reach an agreement that would resolve all of the lawsuits against the State related to the Flint Water Crisis.

    That hard work has culminated in a $600 million preliminary settlement agreement that puts the needs of Flint’s children first. Additional details will be made available as the parties continue working together in a collaborative effort to provide the best possible resolution for the people of Flint.
