Can Flint Get $4.5 Million from Don Williamson?

The City of Flint, in a rare move, has asked a judge to order Don Williamson, Flint’s former mayor, to pick up the tab on a $4.5 million judgment awarded to Flint Police officers. The officers sued the city over Williamson’s creation of the controversial Citizens Service Bureau, and won. You can probably expect a long court battle between the city and the former mayor, who resigned in 2009 when he was facing a recall election.The former mayor has been at the center of controversy many times during his tenure as mayor and after. Arbitrators did rule that race was a factor when Williamson promoted four black men and one white woman  into the specially formed police unit. The original award in the case was $3.8 million, but has grown to $4.5 million with interest. By the time it is finally resolved, it could be significantly higher.
