Mediation set in Charleston cruise case

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A mediation session is set for next month in a lawsuit challenging a permit for a new $35 million passenger cruise ship terminal in Charleston.

Court records show a mediator for the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond plans to meet with attorneys in the case on Jan. 7.

Both the South Carolina State Ports Authority and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are appealing a decision by a federal judge tossing out the Corps' permit for the project.

U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel ruled in September that the Corps didn't adequately review the terminal's effects on the city's historic district.

Environmental, preservation and neighborhood groups have challenged the permit allowing additional pilings beneath a waterfront warehouse so the structure can be renovated for the new passenger terminal.
