Case Summary

This is a suit arising out of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Plaintiffs, who sought to represent a class of Flint water users, initially filed suit in Genesee County Court in Flint on January 19, 2016. They alleged tort claims of gross negligence, fraud, assault and battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress by state officials over the course of the crisis. Plaintiffs were represented by private counsel. Specifically, they claimed that these state officials changed the City…

This is a suit arising out of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Plaintiffs, who sought to represent a class of Flint water users, initially filed suit in Genesee County Court in Flint on January 19, 2016. They alleged tort claims of gross negligence, fraud, assault and battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress by state officials over the course of the crisis. Plaintiffs were represented by private counsel. Specifically, they claimed that these state officials changed the City of Flint’s water supply to the Flint river despite substantial evidence that this water was toxic and hazardous and then continued to use the Flint river to supply water to the city despite mounting evidence of E. Coli and lead. Plaintiffs sought injunctive and declaratory relief.

Four defendants attempted to removed the case to Federal Court on April 27, 2016, where a parallel class-action suit (Mays v. Snyder) had been filed one year earlier. The four defendants were state-level employees of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality who played an important role in switching the source of Flint’s water source and in monitoring the Flint River water. The four employees contended that they were entitled to removal because they were acting as agents of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in enforcing the Safe Drinking Water act when they complied with an EPA emergency order concerning the water crisis.

Defendants had filed a motion to dismiss in Mays v. Snyder on April 4, 2016, which would summarily be granted less than a year later. Therefore, whether or not Defendants would successfully be able to have the case tried in federal court would have important implications as to whether the plaintiffs could hold them liable. If the defendants were successfully able to remove the case to federal court, the Snyder ruling would be, at the very least, strong precedent to dismiss these suits as well.

Plaintiffs subsequently filed for a motion to remand to State Court on May 11, 2016. This motion was granted on October 6, 2016. The court (Judge John Corbett O'Meara) found that state officials were not acting directly under the control of the federal government and so were state agents and not federal agents. Moreover, the court found that the plaintiffs alleged claims under state tort law, not as federal claims over which the federal courts had jurisdiction. However, the court did not award the plaintiffs attorney’s fees, finding that the defendants had reasonable basis for removal. 324 F.Supp.3d 918.

Defendants appealed and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals (Circuit Judges Gilman, Suhrheinrich, and McKeague) affirmed the district court’s ruling on September 11, 2017. They concluded that the four defendants had not sufficiently shown federal jurisdiction in this case and ordered the case be remanded to state court. 871 F.3d 437. The defendants then filed for certiorari to the Supreme Court, but the Supreme Court denied Certiorari on April 17, 2018.
