CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Attorneys in the ongoing dispute over a federal permit for a $35 million cruise terminal in Charleston are wrangling over just what the permit allows.

Attorneys for preservation and neighborhood groups who have sued say more review is needed. They argue that allowing new pilings under a Charleston wharf will allow a dramatic change in the use of the area from a warehouse to a cruise terminal with hundreds of passengers.

Attorneys for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers say the agency did not permit a cruise terminal and simply permitted some pilings.

Attorneys for both sides recently asked a federal judge to rule in their favor without a trial. The latest arguments are their responses to each other's requests to the judge.
