Free Press, News, NLJ, ABC Covers Pitt and Flint Lawsuit Go Ahead

From the Detroit Free Press

The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday reversed a federal judge's decision to dismiss two lawsuits filed by Flint residents over the contamination of their drinking water, saying parts of the lawsuits can proceed to trial.

It's a victory for Flint activist Melissa Mays and other plaintiffs.

A three-judge panel unanimously reversed parts of orders issued by U.S. District Judge John Corbett O'Meara of Ann Arbor, who had dismissed the lawsuits.

"It's really a very important decision," said Royal Oak attorney Michael Pitt, who represents Mays and other plaintiffs in one of the two lawsuits.

"It's a good day for the people of Flint."
