Court Refuses To Hear Suit Over Camp Lejeune Water

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

The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal by Donal McLean Snyder Jr. of the lower courts' dismissal of his lawsuit.

Snyder lived at Camp Lejeune as a young 1st lieutenant the 1970s, and said the dumping of trichloroethylene, an ingredient in cleaning solvents, into the ground polluted the water.
