FLINT, MI — A group of attorneys involved in civil litigation over the Flint water crisis is asking Gov. Rick Snyder to restore subsidies for Flint water customers until tap water is “safe and untainted.”
“We speak on behalf of our clients, who are victims of the Flint water tragedy, which includes thousands of class action members who have been damaged …,” the Flint Water Class Action Legal Team said in a news release Thursday, May 25.
“Despite the fact that the water is still not safe to drink, the state of Michigan saw fit to end water relief credits at the end of February, triggering the law that would have placed tax liens on the 8,000 properties for which water bills were not being paid.
The team includes the lawfirms of Pitt McGehee Palmer & Rivers P.C.; Trachell Young & Associates and the Law Offices of Deborah Labelle.
