Here is the latest Michigan news from The Associated Press at 5:40 p.m. EDT

ANN ARBOR, Mich, (AP) — The University of Michigan is replacing the law firm pegged to lead the investigation into allegations that a deceased team doctor molested hundreds of people. The change came after the university learned that some of its attorney represented high-profile clients accused of sexual misconduct. The school said it would find another firm to continue investigating claims against Dr. Robert E. Anderson. The university says the association with Steptoe & Johnson “could discourage survivors hurt by Dr. Anderson from coming forward.” The firm’s lawyers have represented Jeffrey Epstein, the financier who killed himself last year while awaiting on charges of sexually abusing girls. 

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden worshiped at a predominantly African American church in Mississippi, two days before the state’s primary. It’s a state where black voters will play a pivotal role. Rival Bernie Sanders is campaigning in Michigan, the biggest prize among the six states voting Tuesday. A Mississippi congressman who introduced Biden to the congregation called Biden “the comeback kid.” Biden struggled in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada but won decisively in South Carolina, boosted by African American voters. He also had a strong showing on Super Tuesday. Sanders, attempting to bolster his own appeal with African Americans, announced the endorsement of the Rev. Jesse Jackson. 

OGDEN DUNES, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana community along Lake Michigan has filed a federal lawsuit over its battle with shoreline erosion. Ogden Dunes argues that the town’s infrastructure and homes are in danger of “total destruction” if there’s failure of the shoreline protection system. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Hammond, names the National Park Service and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, among others. The Chicago Tribune reports that erosion became a concern a decade ago. The lawsuit says protection plans were approved but Park Service and Army Corps “repeatedly interfered.” Federal officials did not immediate return a request for comment. 

WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan lawmaker has introduced a bill that would require school districts to include a 24-hour suicide prevention hotline number on student identification cards for grades 6-12. The Detroit News reports that Republican Rep. Andrea Schroeder introduced the measure last month. The bill has bipartisan support and has been assigned to a committee. It would require schools that issue student IDs to include a local, state, or national hotline on them. But Schroeder says the bill would not require schools to distribute ID cards. Schroeder says she was spurred to action after learning about two students who died by suicide in Oakland County last year.
