Legal action in dispute over SC cruise ships

CHARLESTON — Several environmental groups are suing in the ongoing dispute
over cruise ships calling in Charleston.

Michelle Sinkler of the South Carolina Coastal Conservation League says
details of the suit are being released at a Monday news conference. The
South Carolina State Ports Authority and Mayor Joe Riley plan a news
conference later to respond.

The cruise industry has expanded during the past year with Carnival cruise
lines stationing its Carnival Fantasy ship in the city. The Ports Authority
is planning a new $25 million cruise terminal.

Environmentalists and neighborhood residents worry about the impact on the
city.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is expected to announce
Wednesday whether Charleston will make the list of the nation's 11 most
endangered historic places because of the cruise industry.
