A federal judge ruled Flint, Michigan, residents can sue the federal government for its role in the five-year water crisis. 

CNN reports U.S. Judge Linda V. Parker ruled Thursday that the federal government is not immune from litigation.

Since the onset of the crisis, there have been numerous lawsuits filed against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for reportedly not acting quickly enough. Currently, there are about a dozen lawsuits against the city of Flint and the state of Michigan. Many of the lawsuits alleged the government knew the Flint River water source and outdated piping were contaminated with lead in 2014 and 2015 .  . .
