Carnival Cruise Lines & Charleston

charleston_cruise_shipMany of Charleston’s downtown residents want to rid downtown Charleston of cruise ships.  The Preservation Society of Charleston, the Coastal Conservation League, and the Historic Ansonborough district in downtown Charleston, filed suit against Carnival Cruise Lines several years ago, alleging that the cruise line was violating Charleston’s nuisance, noise and sign ordinances.  On Wednesday, January 22nd, these groups were very disappointed when the South Carolina Supreme Court ruled that they lacked standing and dismissed their suit.
