CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Charleston’s Livability Court set up 13 years ago to deal with minor offenses such as noise and litter violations is the subject of a court challenge at the South Carolina Supreme Court.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports (https://bit.ly/194Nat3v ) that Connie Spence of Mount Pleasant owns rental properties in Charleston and has sued.

Her lawsuit contends that the court is unconstitutional because it improperly deals with civil matters.

But attorneys for the city of Charleston say the court has been properly established and Spence cannot show she’s been harmed.

Spence has received a citation for litter at one of her properties, but the attorneys say it has not yet gone before the Livability Court.
