CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Attorneys will wait a few more months before arguing over a state permit for a $35 million passenger cruise terminal in downtown Charleston.

The State Court of Appeals had indicated it would hear the case in December, but scheduling conflicts have delayed the matter. The court has informed attorneys the court is considering scheduling the case in May.

The case concerns the South Carolina Ports Authority’s plans to build a new cruise terminal by renovating a waterfront warehouse. The Department of Health and Environmental Control granted a permit almost three years ago to allow additional pilings beneath the warehouse.

Preservation and conservation groups are challenging the permit, saying regulators didn’t consider the impact of the terminal on historic Charleston.
