Local groups plan lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines

Carnival Cruise Lines is coming under fire after local groups plan to file a lawsuit against them.

The Coastal Conservation League and the Historic Ansonborough Neighborhood Association are both included in a draft lawsuit against Carnival.

They plan to file the lawsuit by Friday or Monday. Some of the issues addressed in the draft include regulating noise, zoning, ship size and pollution.

A spokesperson for the State Ports Authority says there will be no comment on the lawsuit until it's officially filed.
