Marsh Docks Lawsuit_Rich copy.jpg

In this Feb. 1, 2010 photo provided by the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, Harry Carter of Skidaway uses a fork lift to adjust a mock boat dock being used in an experiment on the Savannah, Ga. campus. Skidaway researcher Clark Alexander spent three years studying whether docks built over coastal marshes do less environmental harm if they�re riddled with holes instead of made with solid wood. His research is at the center of a lawsuit by environmentalists challenging a permitting perk given to coastal Georgians who build private docks with open grating.
