Lawyers leading the litigation over the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, have submitted a diverse group of attorneys to serve as settlement counsel, along with a retired judge to oversee the allocation process, should both sides reach a deal to resolve the legal claims.

In a Thursday motion, lead plaintiffs counsel floated the names of five attorneys to serve as settlement counsel for various subclasses of claimants, such as children with personal injuries and businesses with economic losses.
