One year after floods ravaged mid-Michigan, those impacted have received no justice or compensation as complex litigation against the State of Michigan drags on. Ven Johnson Law is asking all citizens to contact their local, state, and federal legislators, urging them to act to expediate the litigation and not allow this nightmare to drag on for years without justice.

Sample language for calls, emails and letters to legislators:
In May 2020, the Edenville and Sanford dams overflowed, devastated many communities and upended the lives of thousands of Michiganders. To date, victims of the flood have received no justice, no compensation and are paying taxes on property plummeting in value. The case against the State of Michigan is currently in the Court of Claims and will not go to trial until 2024 at the earliest.
I urge you act to expediate the litigation and not allow this nightmare to drag on.
Our tax dollars should not be used to defend the government entities that failed thousands of mid-Michigan residents, but instead should be utilized to compensate the victims and rebuild the dams.
