A federal appeals court has ruled against Governor Snyder’s administration, and is keeping the tap open for free water in Flint. According to the Associated Press, in a 2-1 decision, the court is refusing to block delivery of free bottled water to Flint residents who have trouble with lead filters. The court said that delivery may be unusual, but noted that there’s “no precedent” for a system that “has caused thousands of people to be exposed to poisonous water.”
