Plaintiffs' lawyers wary of taking on Flint water scandal | Reuters

The water scandal in Flint, Michigan has many of the ingredients for a mass, class-action lawsuit: danger signs that may have been ignored, many thousands of potential victims, the possibility of lifelong health problems, and the alleged systemic failure of people in charge. Even consumer activist Erin Brockovich, the main subject of a 2000 movie named after her, has drawn attention to Flint's plight on her Facebook page and in public appearances. But big-name, national plaintiffs' firms have yet to jump into the fray in Flint, which has a population of about 100,000. #social media #United States #Europe #markets #Entertainment #publishing #Pollution

Iraq summons Saudi envoy over comments on Iran-backed militias | Reuters

BAGHDAD Iraq summoned the new Saudi ambassador on Sunday after he suggested Iranian-backed Shi'ite militias were exacerbating sectarian tensions and should leave the fight against Islamic State to the Iraqi army and official security forces. Baghdad's move underscores the depth of enmity between Sunni and Shi'ite Muslim powers as sectarian conflicts rage in Syria, Yemen and Iraq. Riyadh only reopened its embassy in Baghdad last month, shut down since the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990. #Politics #Middle East #Europe #publishing #author #article
