Seven defendants in the Flint water crisis were in court to hear Judge Manley decisions on key issues. The biggest ruling was the release of over 250 thousand City of Flint documents and emails, allowing the lawyers access to this mountain of information. Next, there was the argument against Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) to get them to release all the notes from their investigations and interviews in regards to the Flint water crisis. Last year Governor Snyder halted the investigations by both the OIG and OAG before any conclusions were made. The lawyers from the OIG and OAG argued that the documents were not complete recordings or record information. Prosecutor Flood argued that this information would be very helpful and the fact that they are fighting the release it makes it look more like a cover up. Eventually, the court ordered that all those documents be released before the preliminary court cases in March. Lastly, Mr. Flood argued against the Michigan state police wanting them to halt the release of any composed statements to the public. The defense lawyers argued that they have a right to any of the information, composed or not. Judge Manley ruled that the non compelled statements are to be released and Flood will argue his case again in March. On March 13, there will be a continuation of the primary examinations, as well as the sentencing of Corinne Miller.
