He says lawsuits on behalf of them should be filed in a matter of days and unlike the class action lawsuit filed in Minnesota he says the legal action will be handled individually.
"Each one is a different story," said Clayton. "We're interested in seeing each family's situation decided on an individual basis."
The lawsuits are coming right as health officials are bringing some good news.
Dr. Robert Latham of St. Thomas is treating 31 meningitis patients.
He says 28 are in stable condition.
"Most of the stable conditions are showing signs of improvement some at a faster pace than others," said Latham.
One patient was released Friday and another will be released soon.
Dr. Latham says the treatment process is moving slow and some patients have spent four weeks undergoing it.
It's another sign of why Clayton says lawsuits will be coming.
"Some of them are fighting for their lives. Some are paralyzed from their waist down. Some are having really bad situation bad symptoms," said Clayton.
