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.

Tishomingo County voters OK beer, alcohol sales
May 22, 2013 23:38 GMT
IUKA, Miss. (AP) -- Tishomingo County is the latest Mississippi jurisdiction to legalize alcohol sales.
Voters approved the sale of liquor, wine and beer Tuesday, reports the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/13JCcix).
It wasn't clear referendums would pass until affidavit ballots were counted Wednesday.
With more than half Tishomingo County's voters casting ballots, legalizing alcohol passed by 42 votes, while legalizing beer and light wine passed by 73. The county borders Alabama and Tennessee.
Lawmakers legalized liquor at a proposed resort at the county's Bay Springs Lake in 2010, but it wasn't built.
Greene County voters legalized beer sales last year, while Corinth, New Albany and Senatobia have legalized alcohol sales under a 2012 law that allows cities to hold votes.
Mississippi has 13 remaining counties that allow no beer or alcohol sales.
