WASHINGTON (AP) - 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 courts' dismissal of his lawsuit.

A Marine Corps spokesman had no immediate comment on the legal ramifications of the ruling, but said the corps is concerned about the water situation.
