The cruise ship referenda battle may claim a completely separate victim.

Key West City Attorney Shawn Smith told city commissioners at their last meeting that a deal to build a pedestrian bridge over Admiral's Cut, the 45-foot-wide water gap in the sidewalk between the Pier B cruise port and Truman Waterfront Park, may be sidelined by the recent lawsuit filed against the city by Pier B Development Corp. Both Pier B and the owner of Admiral's Cut, Margaritaville Key West Resort & Marina, are controlled by Ocean Properties, Ltd., one of the largest hotel and development company in the United States.
