"Court Won't Hear Suit on Camp Lejeune Water"

"The Supreme Court refused Monday to hear a Marine's lawsuit blaming the government's dumping of toxic chemicals at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina for his son's illnesses.

The high court declined to hear an appeal by Donal McLean Snyder Jr. of a lower court's dismissal of his lawsuit....

Health officials think that as many as 1 million people may have been exposed to water toxins over a span of about three decades before the wells were closed 22 years ago."

The Associated Press had the story June 8, 2009.
