SC Supreme Court hears incorporation challenge

Feb 2, 2011 4:06:00 AM - thestate.com
The South Carolina Supreme Court is again hearing arguments on whether the Town of James Island may incorporate.

The justices hear arguments Wednesday.

The town has incorporated three times during the past two decades, but the first two were tossed out as illegal following court challenges from the neighboring city of Charleston.

Just over two years ago, a state judge upheld the 2006 incorporation of the town, but Charleston again appealed to the high court.

Charleston claims the law under which James Island incorporated five years ago is unconstitutional.
