After more than 18 months of negotiations, Flint, Michigan, residents and businesses are set to receive $600 million under a newly unveiled proposal that would settle civil claims stemming from the city’s water crisis, according to leading attorneys on the plaintiffs’ side.

Co-lead counsel for the class of injured plaintiffs, Theodore Leopold of Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, told on Thursday morning that Michigan, its Department of Environmental Quality, as well as former Gov. Rick Snyder and other government officials, have agreed to the multimillion-dollar accord in a deal that must secure court approval.
