CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - It's been almost four years since the South Carolina Ports Authority announced plans to build a new $35 million cruise terminal in downtown Charleston to handle the city's expanded cruise industry.
And it's going on three years that the battles over the terminal have been working their way through the courts. The challenges to the terminal are coming from environmental, neighborhood and preservation groups in federal, state and administrative law courts. They won't be ending anytime soon.
The new year brings court activity on several fronts. Next week a mediation session is scheduled in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals while a state administrative law judge also hears an appeal later this month. Both cases concern permits for pilings that will allow the new terminal to be built.
