Groups accuse Flint of violating legal settlement over water

Plaintiffs in a landmark legal settlement related to Flint's lead-tainted water have asked a federal judge to intervene because they say city officials have repeatedly ignored requirements that allow monitoring of whether the court-ordered deal is being followed.

The motion, filed late Wednesday in federal court in Detroit, accuses Flint and its city administrator of a "pattern of nonresponsiveness, delay and noncompliance" with providing status updates and other information. The agreement, which was approved in March, requires the city to dig at 18,000 Flint households and replace their underground water lines if they are made of lead or galvanized steel.
