Twenty-six Saginaw County, Mich., residents have filed a class-action lawsuit against Dow Chemical Co., saying dioxin contamination caused by its Midland, Mich., manufacturing plant has threatened their health and left their property worthless. The lawsuit seeks to represent about 2,000 people. Dow Chemical said it had just learned of the complaint and couldn't respond. In the lawsuit, the residents ask the court to make Dow establish a medical monitoring trust fund for them.
