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.

Former Dyer County constable sentenced to prison
May 23, 2013 12:50 GMT
DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Dyer County Constable Derick Shane Hundley has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.
The State Gazette (http://bit.ly/14UHydd ) reported Hundley was sentenced Monday after earlier entering a guilty plea to enticement of a minor through electronic means. The government dropped a child pornography count.
Prosecutors said Hundley, who is 30, used a cellphone to try to entice a minor female to have sex with him. Police arrested Hundley last July and found an external hard drive that contained numerous images of minors involved in sex. He resigned from the constable post he had won in 2010 after his arrest.
