White & Case associate Lindsay Heck, who represents the children of Flint, Michigan, impacted by the lead-tainted water crisis (pro bono), was featured live on MSNBC with reporter Geoff Bennett. She discussed the education and cognitive challenges that the children continue to face years after the water crisis was uncovered, the special education model that the lawsuit has helped shape to address these challenges and how this model can be used in other cities that are facing the same problems. She also addressed a new lead and copper rule for drinking water, proposed by the EPA, which would be the first major federal change for drinking water in two decades.
