CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A lawsuit challenging a $35 million South Carolina cruise terminal is going before a federal judge.

U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel is scheduled to hear arguments Thursday from both sides on why he should rule in their favor without a trial. He has set November for a full trial on the matter if needed.

Environmental and neighborhood groups have sued over the planned Charleston terminal. They say the Army Corps of Engineers should have more extensively studied the impact on the environment and the city before issuing a permit allowing additional pilings under a wharf for the terminal.

Attorneys for the Corps says the permit isn't for a terminal, only for installing five clusters of pilings beneath a building already utilized for maritime uses.
