Wayne Law professor appointed to Flint water investigation team

March 25, 2016

Wayne State University Law School Associate Professor Noah Hall, an expert in environmental and water law, has been appointed special assistant attorney general for Michigan, joining the special counsel team for the Flint water investigation. The special counsel team will investigate to determine if any state laws were violated and then potentially could prosecute under civil and criminal law options. As Hall explained: Appointing the team was necessary because the Michigan attorney general must advise and ultimately defend the state and its agencies in this matter. Attorney General Bill Schuette has established an “iron-clad conflict wall” between the attorney general’s office and the special counsel team, allowing both sides to do their job properly.
