AC-T: Lawsuit over Smokies camping fee can continue

A federal judge has ruled that a lawsuit over backcountry camping fees implemented last year at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park can move forward, the Asheville Citizen-Times reported Friday.

However, Eastern District of Kentucky Senior Judge Joseph Hood dismissed a portion of the lawsuit that challenges an online reservation system.

According to media reports, Hood said in his ruling this week that South Forest Watch had failed to show any harm from the reservation system.
