The legal battle will continueon Thursday for a local business that rents low-speed vehicles in downtown Savannah. 

Chatham County Judge TammyStokes has been reviewing state and city codes while trying to settle a disputeinvolving the Savannah Hopper business, and is set to resume a hearing on the matter later Thursday.
