Six months in, AGís probe of Flint crisis tops $2M

Lansing ó Attorney General Bill Schuette spent more than $2 million in the first six months of his Flint water crisis investigation on a team of attorneys, investigators and support personnel that totaled 42 people in June, according to records obtained by The Detroit News.

About $1.86 million of the expenses went to paying lawyers, retired police officers investigating the widespread contamination of Flintís water, law clerks and an unnamed expert witness, according to invoices The News obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.

The records show Schuette spent another $178,000 on computers, printers, copiers and cellphones for 23 attorneys, investigators and aides to keep communication about the investigation separated from the day-to-day work at the Attorney Generalís Office, which is separately representing state agencies subject to the wide-ranging criminal probe.

Thirteen attorneys who have worked on the case racked up more than $987,000 in charges through mid-June, including $226,500 billed by Royal Oak attorney Todd Flood as the lead special prosecutor in the case through his firm, Flood Law PLLC. In July, the State Administrative Board approved a $3.4 million increase in the Flood law firmís original $1.5 million contract that can be spent through September 2017 investigating and prosecuting individuals responsible for Flintís lead-tainted water.
