South Carolina Circuit Court Judge Clifton Newman on July 12 will hear motions in the Carnival Cruise Lines lawsuit filed a year ago by four citizen groups in Charleston.

Newman earlier this month was named a special referee in the case by the South Carolina SupremeCourt. A referee judge typically collects testimony in a case and makes recommendations to the court.

The high court took jurisdiction over the lawsuit in early 2012.

The suit, brought by the Southern Environmental Law Center on behalf of the citizen groups, charges that the Carnival Fantasy violates local zoning ordinances, including height and environmental regulations, noise limits and accommodations rules. The Fantasy homeports in Charleston.
