The attorneys representing flint water crisis residents have put in a request to the U.S. District Court for $202 million, 31% of the current settlement amount. Attorney General Dana Nessel said the state will rely on the court to determine what the attorneys are owed.
The settlement has been funded mostly by the state of Michigan, owing $600 million for wrongdoing. Another $20 million come from the city of Flint insurers, $20 million from McLaren Flint Hospital and $1.2 million from Rowe Professional Services. More money could still be added from other convicted sources.
Flint residents who want a share need to register in three weeks with legal counsel. Registration is due March 29th. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-866-536-0717 for more information.
