The latest round in the Champlin's Marina saga came to a close last week as both sides rested their cases over an application to expand the marina in Block Island's Great Salt Pond.

Lawyers for the marina and the town raised numerous objections to a compromise expansion plan offered by Dan Goulet, an engineer for the Coastal Resources Management Council.

That seems to leave both sides as far apart as they were when the battle started seven years ago, with the town wanting no expansion and the marina wanting to use four more acres of the pond, The Providence Journal reports.

The lawyers now have until Sept. 14 to file briefs making their legal arguments.

Soon after that, the council panel will meet and try to come to a decision.
