WASHINGTON The Supreme Court on Monday dealt a blow to North Carolina families trying to sue over groundwater contamination at a big Marine Corps base.
In a technical decision with real-world consequences, the court upheld North Carolinas limits on how long people have to bring certain pollution-related lawsuits. By upholding the states 10-year limit, called a statute of repose, the court effectively undercut lawsuits centering on Camp Lejeune.
Time is the controlling factor, Justice Anthony Kennedy declared.

Why did you leave out the most important thing the government believes it owns............................the people.
I’ve been getting my ‘updates’ from the study periodically for several years.
This statute of limitations law is ludicrous. They didn’t find out about the contamination until when?..............
Great cleaner, nasty stuff in the ground.
Dry cleaners loved it.
Yes we used this stuff for some drafting work back in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Old school drafting, pen and ink, lol. Of course us Marines love the smell of Hoppe’s no. 9, brings back fond memories of being shooters and hunters and we know what use to be in that.
Borrowed, or blessed? Many did not get sick.
I left Jville a couple of months ago (am actually homesick). Lived across from the Beirut memorial with a little stream flowing by my apt. Water was still disgusting but mostly looked like rust. ??
Saw a bobcat and a fox following the stream. Also heard weird birds, maybe turkey? Loud and alien sounding. One really sick raccoon too, in the middle of the afternoon. Called animal control on that one.
Have family issues here (temp-waiting for resolution). Moved down 1.5 yrs ago. I miss the Ospreys. For some reason I was content there. I don’t like the beach, love mountains but nothing bothered me. Here, I am claustrophobic with houses and houses and more houses from DC to Boston.
Maybe it’s a southern thing since Jville was the farthest south that I have lived. I did live in Spfld MO for 13 years but hated it except for the art.
When I moved down I stayed in Hubert for the first month. I like Maysville and Swansboro. I LOVE Havelock, but I am partial to jets.
Good luck ...
