S.C. Supreme Court justices mull damage claims against AVX in
pollution case involving Myrtle Beach property owners
By David Wren Myrtle Beach Sun News (SC) January 23, 2014COLUMBIA - The state's Supreme Court justices on Thursday appeared skeptical of Myrtle Beach property owners' plans to sue AVX Corp. over groundwater pollution that is near - but hasn’t directly impacted - their land, although a lawyer representing those owners said it is too early in the legal process to dismiss their claims.
