Notice Regarding Press and Public Access to Court Hearings


The Flint water bellwether jury is scheduled to deliberate from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. next Monday through Thursday at the courthouse in Ann Arbor.

The Court will alert the media by email when the jury is ready to announce its verdict, although we have no idea when that might happen. The email will contain a Zoom link for journalists to access the proceedings. Once the Court sends the email alert, journalists will have 15-20 minutes to get online.

The Court is not planning to livestream any questions jurors might address to U.S. District Judge Judith Levy during its deliberations, but the media is welcome to staff the U.S. Courthouse in Ann Arbor to be present for those questions .News outlets also may wish to create a media pool to staff the courthouse throughout deliberations.

Please alert Public Information Officer David Ashenfelter to any arrangements.

The eight-member jury consists of five women and three men. Two jurors were excused during trial, one for contracting COVID and the other because of a long-planned family commitment.
