Jackson, Mississippi, residents file class action lawsuit against city over water issues

Mississippi National Guardsmen helped distribute water on September 2 after the city's system partially failed.

Four residents of Jackson, Mississippi, have filed a class action lawsuit against the city, the mayor, a former mayor and several others regarding the city's water issues.

The 99-page complaint filed last week is asking for an unspecified amount of relief to "remediate the harm caused by lack of access to safe water," it says.
