Lawsuit Against City of Flint Brought by Coalition for Clean Water Dismissed
A lawsuit brought against the City of Flint by the Coalition for Clean Water has been dismissed in Circuit Court.
According to a news release, in a September 14th ruling, Judge Archie Hayman determined the plaintiff did not state a valid cause of action against the city, the mayor and city administrator. Hayman also determined that he did not have jurisdiction to provide the relief sought by the plaintiff. All counts of the Coalition's amended complaint were therefore dismissed.
The city says they have maintained communication with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the Environmental Protection Agency to ensure all proper safety and quality water standards have been followed and they will continue to work to ensure safe, quality and affordable drinking water.
Updates on water will continue to be posted on the city's website, cityofflint.com and anyone with water issues is encouraged to call (810) 766-7202.
