Former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder may soon be forced to talk about his decisions during the Flint water crisis.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit denied Snyder’s and former state Treasurer Andy Dillon’s efforts to be shielded from being disposed for a civil lawsuit.

Snyder and Dillon argued that they can't be forced to sit through depositions, while they're still trying to get dismissed from lawsuits based on governmental immunity.
