Flint woman suing over poisoned water crisis found shot to death in home — RT America: Bell’s lawsuit targeted multiple companies that played a role in treating and monitoring the safety of the water in Flint during the crisis, as well as government workers who the suit claimed were guilty of misconduct. According to Stern, Bell’s case will move forward with a representative for her child.
Up to this point, Bell’s case has bounced around between state and federal courts. As part of 64 lawsuits filed by law firms on behalf of 144 Flint children, the cases were moved to US District Court after first being filed in Genesee Circuit Court. But on April 13, US District Judge John Corbett O'Meara ruled the federal courts had no jurisdiction over the cases and sent them back down to the state level.
He issued a similar ruling six days later regarding a $150 million class-action lawsuit. In that case, Flint residents were seeking damages over water bill payments, arguing that they paid their bills while the city and state delivered water contaminated with lead.
