A new class-action lawsuit filed Monday, March 7 over the city's water crisis is seeking damages for those injured from exposure to the introduction of lead and other substances.

The lawsuit on behalf of seven families states children and adults have been exposed to "damaging levels" of lead and seeks relief for physical and psychological injuries, learning and other permanent disabilities, weight loss, stunted growth, as well as emotional distress and loss of income.

Ari Adler, spokesman for Gov. Snyder, said the office does not comment on pending litigation. The state is named in the lawsuit, along with former emergency managers and former City of Flint and state employees.
