The lead-contaminated drinking water that has plagued Flint, Mich., has prompted a $150-million-plus class-action suit filed by Baltimore attorney William H. Murphy Jr.

Murphy recently negotiated a $6.4 million settlement with the city for the family of Freddie Gray following Gray’s fatal injury in police custody. He also spoke to the media about the family’s support of mandatory police body cameras.

Murphy told the Baltimore Sun that the class-action suit seeks $150 million in water bill refunds for the time during which the Flint River was supplying the city with water, plus an unspecified “significantly more” for “all of the damages that are a consequence of having to be forced to use dangerous water.”
