FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Prosecutors in the Flint water investigation must stop using certain documents seized from state offices until an independent team reviews them for any violation of attorney-client privilege.

Genesee County Judge Elizabeth Kelly has turned down a request to reconsider her November order against the attorney general’s office. The dispute over documents has been a key issue since nine people were charged a year ago with crimes related to lead-tainted water in Flint and Legionnaires’ disease. The nine include former Gov. Rick Snyder and his top health officials. All have pleaded not guilty.
