The Supreme Court says a group of homeowners in North Carolina can’t sue a company that contaminated their drinking water because a state deadline has lapsed. The justices ruled 7-2 on Monday that state law strictly bars any lawsuit brought more than 10 years after the contamination — even if residents did not realize their water was polluted until years later. The decision is a setback for the families of thousands of former North Carolina-based Marines suing the federal government in a similar case for exposing them to contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune.
