$600 MIL­LION SET­TLE­MENT REACHED OVER FLINT WA­TER

Chicago Sun-Times - - OBITUARIES -

LANS­ING, Mich. — A $600 mil­lion deal be­tween the state of Michi­gan and Flint res­i­dents who were harmed by lead-tainted wa­ter in 2014 is a step to­ward mak­ing amends for a dis­as­ter that up­ended life in the poor, ma­jor­ity-Black city, Gov. Gretchen Whit­mer said Thurs­day. State of­fi­cials and lawyers for Flint res­i­dents an­nounced the set­tle­ment, which At­tor­ney Gen­eral Dana Nes­sel said likely would be the largest in Michi­gan his­tory, with tens of thou­sands of po­ten­tial claimants.
