Flint water crisis focus of Michigan State ‘teach-ins’

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Michigan State University law professors and others are exploring the legal and political ramifications of the crisis in Flint caused by its lead-tainted drinking water.

“The MSU Law Teach-In on Flint Water Debacle: Legal and Political Responses” is being held Thursday at the East Lansing university’s law school. The event is free and open to the public.

Scheduled speakers are Eric Scorsone, founding director of the MSU Extension Center for Local Government and Policy, and associate law professor Mark Totten. They will be joined by Cary McGehee, a founding partner of the Pitt, McGehee Palmer & Rivers law firm.

The university held a teach-in Wednesday that focused on public health and environmental injustice aspects of the Flint water crisis.
