Governor Rick Snyder, the Governor’s Office, and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality have each been served subpoenas over the Flint water crisis.
Lawyers for Flint residents who are part of a class-action lawsuit are seeking emails, text messages, and other items tied to the city’s water service for the past five years. The request covers the time period of January 1, 2011 to the present.
Lawyers are interested in communications received or sent by Snyder, members of his staff, Emergency Managers Darnell Earley, Michael Brown, Gerald Ambrose and Edward Kurtz which relate to the Flint River as a source of drinking water, Flint River quality or the Karegondi Water Authority.
Governor Snyder has already released more than 250 emails and other related correspondence regarding Flint’s drinking water.
