This story is breaking and will be updated as more information becomes available.

On Tuesday, charges against former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, along with eight other state officials regarding the Flint water crisis were dismissed.

The Washington Examiner reports:

The Michigan Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that charges against former Gov. Rick Snyder (R) in the Flint water scandal were void, as the judge had no legal authority to issue the indictments in the first place.

The decision also clears Snyder’s health director and seven other people of charges stemming from lead contaminated water in Flint’s water system from 2014-15.

State laws authorize a “judge to investigate, subpoena witnesses, and issue arrest warrants” but do not authorize the judge “to issue indictments,” the court said in a 6-0 opinion.

Not another judge overstepping his or her boundaries. That’s what happens when you have so much power you falsely start to believe you are god like.
NOTHING worse than an activist judge. We have many.
