A five year dispute over parking places at University of South Carolina Gamecock's football games is settled after the Supreme Court ruled on it yesterday.
Three Lifetime Gamecock Club members claimed they had been given special parking places in the apron area of the stadium and in 2012, they were stripped of that privilege. The university closed the area to parking due to safety concerns and transferred the club member's parking spots to the Farmers Market across the street.
They argued that they made large donations to the Gamecock Club in the 1980s to become Lifetime members and they deserved the priority parking. The Supreme Court said the contract outlining Lifetime member benefits never guaranteed a specific parking spot.
The Gamecock Club no longer offers the Lifetime memberships.
