A spokesperson for Attorney General Nessel stated in a statement, “We and the other parties are bound by a federal court order to preserve the privacy of comprehensive settlement and mediation interactions until we reach a particular point. We have not yet reached the point where we can talk about a potential settlement.”

Flint's public health crisis started in 2014 when the city switched water sources from Detroit to the Flint River until a new water pipeline was developed. Corroded pipes moved lead into the drinking water and what was expected to be a money-saving effort grew into a state of emergency situation.
