    Dow Chemical has prevailed in a long-running lawsuit by property owners over dioxin contamination along the Tittabawassee River. The 2003 lawsuit was recently dismissed by a Saginaw County Judge. Dow argued that the statute of limitations had long expired when the case was filed. The company's legal position was strengthened in January. The Michigan Supreme Court said the clock began to run when damage occurred, not in 2002 when regulators publicly reported high levels of contamination in the river's flood plain.   Dow has been cleaning up properties along the river by replacing contaminated soil. property owners wanted to be compensated for lost land value and enjoyment of their property.
