SOUTH CAROLINA BAR-CLE 2011 PUBLICATIONS ADMINISTRATIVE LAW
South Carolina Administrative Practice and Procedure, Second Edition Edited by Randolph R. Lowell
Administrative law in South Carolina has undergone radical and pervasive changes in the last 20 years. Not only has the body of case law dramatically increased, state agency regulatory schemes have grown, due process standards have been more clearly defined, and administrative procedures have become more formal and consistent. Perhaps the most important development in state administrative practice and procedure over the last two decades has been the creation and expansion of the Administrative Law Court. Administrative law touches practically all facets of everyday life and everyday law practice. It provides the framework by which state government administers service, policy, licensing and permitting, and taxation programs. Administrative law regulates telephone and power rates, determines taxes and rates, protects air and water from pollution, oversees and controls the availability of and access to health care services for many of our citizens, sets insurance rates, controls the sale and distribution of intoxicants, enforces health and sanitation standards on restaurants, sets policy for and controls property use, regulates workplace safety, and performs a host of other functions that affect virtually every segment of everyday society. The revised Second Edition of this book has been totally updated since publication of the First Edition. Now available in hardcover, this valuable and important book covers every major aspect of administrative practice and procedure in this state in a scholarly and practical way. 2008 Edition
The Regulation of Alcoholic Beverages in South Carolina Hon. John D. Geathers Justin R. Werner
South Carolina’s regulation of the manufacture, distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages does not solely affect the liquor industry, but touches upon the operations of countless businesses that engage in the commerce of alcoholic beverages in some way, from retail businesses such as grocery stores and convenience markets to hospitality businesses such as restaurants and hotels. And, beyond the licensed businesses, these laws have implications not only for those individuals who seek to purchase and consume alcoholic beverages, but also for any person who might be affected by the operations of a licensed business, including nearby residents, members of a local church, or parents of children who attend a nearby school. Yet, despite the importance of this regulatory scheme to so many facets of life in South Carolina, the state’s regulation of alcoholic beverages remains somewhat enigmatic, found in a tangle of statutory and regulatory provisions that are rife with confusing nuances and confounding euphemisms. The Regulation of Alcoholic Beverages in South Carolina is a comprehensive legal treatise that demystifies this administrative regulatory scheme for both the practitioner and the layperson alike. The treatise provides a scholarly, yet practical, treatment of South Carolina’s regulation of alcoholic beverages that, among other things, describes the basic federal, state and local legal framework under which these beverages are regulated, details the various types of permits and licenses that are required to engage in the commerce of alcoholic beverages, delineates the process of applying for those permits and licenses with the S.C. Department of Revenue, and, if necessary, litigating matters related to those permits and licenses before the S.C. Administrative Law Court. This rich treatise is heavily annotated and meticulously researched and will provide both the practicing attorney and layperson with a valuable resource when seeking to understand the complexities of South Carolina’s regulation of alcoholic beverages. 2007 Edition

Appellate Practice in South Carolina, Second Edition is not only a vital handbook for the novice appellate practitioner, but also a strategy guide for the experienced attorney.

Pattern Jury Instructions for Federal Criminal Cases—District of South Carolina NEW Eric Wm. Ruschky
The Fourth Circuit does not have pattern jury instructions formulated by committees of judges
and practitioners and approved by the circuit for use in criminal cases. The purpose of this work is to fill that void by publishing pattern instructions annotated primarily by reference to Fourth Circuit and Supreme Court cases. Authority from other circuits is referenced only when there is no Fourth Circuit or Supreme Court authority on point. This incredible resource, which took more than four years to research, compose and edit, contains more than 740 pages of substantive text. The instructions are organized in six sections, reflecting the order in which jury instructions are generally given. 1. Preliminary Matters Section addresses burden of proof, presumption of innocence, direct and circumstantial evidence, notetaking by jurors, and similar general topics. 2. Specific Criminal Statutes Section provides pattern charges for most federal crimes, separated into crimes under Title 18 and other Titles. Elements of the offense are included for each crime. Where appropriate, definitions of the key words or phrases used in the elements are also provided. Potential affirmative defenses are explained and pertinent case law is cited in footnotes. 3. Definitions Section provides explanations of terms commonly used throughout the criminal code. These are terms whose meaning does not vary depending on the crime charged. 4. Defenses Section provides jury instructions for various defenses to crimes. In addition, it provides defense-specific definitions for common terms and explains to which crimes each defense is applicable. 5. Final Instructions Section advises the jury as to rules they must follow in evaluating evidence admitted during the trial and in reaching a verdict. These non-offense-specific instructions also include rules for deliberations. 6. Practice Notes Section addresses a number of lesser-known legal principles that may influence the preparation of jury instructions. For example, this section covers special verdicts and lesser included offenses, as well as jury nullification. Each purchase of the hardcover text will automatically include the entire text on CD. This will allow you to perform a keyword search and copy and paste any charges into your own documents and/or e-mails. 2011 Edition

child support: representing the non- custodial parent, continued.
With today’s current economic climate, it would be nearly impossible to find a practicing family law attorney without a substantial number of clients who have needs in this area. Certainly there is an abundance of information and assistance to the custodial parent attempting to collect child support; unfortunately resources are limited for the non-custodial parent. This book was created to help those representing the non-custodial parent and is intended to help you and your client through the negotiation as well as the litigation process. It addresses the issues of paternity testing, including the constitutional right to demand the test. It also discusses the process by which a child support order is established, including information about how child support is calculated, and what financial information must be presented to the court. Lastly the book examines the long term management of a child support obligation. Since child support is usually paid for many years it is common to expect numerous hearings, even in the best case scenario. An understanding of how to request a reduction in the payment, an emergency suspension of the obligation and how to end the obligation is essential. The book also contains a glossary, which provides a summary of each state’s law on child support and parentage. 2009 Edition
Lawyers’ Valuations and Accounting Desk Book Raymond E. McKay Jr.
Lawyers’ Valuations and Accounting Desk Book is a “sequel” to Business Valuations for Lawyers, published by the South Carolina Bar a number of years ago. The idea was to not only update the previous book from a technical standpoint, but to take an easier approach to a subject that has probably been treated in most books with more mystery than necessary. In addition, the scope was broadened to include two chapters related to divorce valuations, including retirement plans and employee stock options, along with an overview and tutorial of financial statements and basic accounting concepts. The theme is simplicity. This is a book for practicing lawyers looking for a basic handle on the subjects covered, not for experienced business valuers interested in esoteric nuances. It is more than a primer, but considerably less than an exhaustive treatise on the subjects covered. It is intended to provide basic, but
long-lasting, assistance to the lawyer needing a quickstudy of the topics. 2008 Edition
Marital Litigation in South Carolina Substantive Law, Fourth Edition Professor Emeritus Roy T. Stuckey
This exceptional treatise, the "bible" for South Carolina domestic relations practitioners and judges, provides comprehensive analysis of every major aspect of family law of this state. With more than 100 new cases added and updates through August 2010, the new Fourth Edition is a resource every family law attorney should own. New for the Fourth Edition several chapters were significantly reorganized and new sections added. Revisions to the UCCJEA and UIFSA were incorporated, and the Military Parent Equal Protection Act is discussed. The statutory citations, including those in older cases, were updated to reflect the re-codification of large portions of Title 20 into Title 63. An outstanding resource, the book is arranged in well-organized, clearly delineated chapters and sections. The narrative style is clean and straightforward, with a very practical point of view. It includes background and "historical perspective" on the statutory and case law development and the nuances involved in the issues, but the primary focus is on the current law. Professor Stuckey offers valuable analysis regarding several important areas of marital law where there is no clear precedent or authority, or where practices might be inconsistent from one part of the state to another. 2010 Edition

try a complex case within a very few days. Now there is a book that fully prepares the practitioner for these proceedings. Part One, based on the author’s own research and interviews with local and state election officials, describes how elections themselves are conducted—essential background knowledge for handling a protest. This part covers the registration process, the casting of a normal vote, the various types of atypical votes that arise, and the counting of the votes. Whether a case involves “failsafe” ballots, “curbside” voting, “ballot styles,” or any other arcane concept from election procedures, this part will explain it. Part Two covers protest procedures. It first addresses general procedural matters such as the requirements for the notice of protest by which a protest is begun. It also contains charts, broken down by the kind of election, which give filing deadlines, procedures for perfecting service, the body before which to file, time limits for the hearing, and appeals. These charts are especially valuable because protests are heard before a number of different bodies and time limits for filing are short (as little as 48 hours from the close of the polls) and strictly enforced. Part Three addresses substantive law. In addition to important general rules, it addresses numerous specific issues such as violation of ballot secrecy, votes cast in the wrong precinct, and problems in counting the votes. In the final chapter the author draws on his personal experience to provide some practical advice on trying a protest. Among the topics covered are documents which counsel may wish to examine and suggestions on how to develop proof on certain factual issues. The book also contains a glossary, summaries of important cases, the texts of selected statutes, and an index. Illustrations of important documents are provided throughout. 2008 Edition
Election Protests Under South Carolina Law Timothy E. Hurley

Health Care Fraud & Collateral Consequences, Second Edition E. Bart Daniel, Matthew R. Hubbell, Joseph P. Griffith Jr., J. Brady Hair and Derk van Raalte
Recently, health care emerged as a contentious hot button issue culminating in the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2009. PPACA is built upon the foundation of HIPAA. HIPAA forever transformed the enforcement landscape. In addition to creating a specific health care fraud offense, it funded new prosecutor, auditor and agent positions to ferret out and prosecute health care offenders. U.S. Attorneys’ offices formed teams of experienced prosecutors and agents trained in health care fraud. These experienced teams began initiating parallel proceedings. It became the norm for defendants to be prosecuted on criminal charges, sued on the civil claims and later excluded from participating in government funded health care programs. In addition, sealed whistleblower lawsuits have become a cottage industry for many in the plaintiffs’ bar. On the strength of a proven track record of collecting billions, Congress has provided more aggressive enforcement tools and increased funding for the HHS and the DOJ under the PPACA. The Act provides increased funding for prosecutor and investigator positions, creates powerful new investigative tools, lowers the bar for prosecutors and whistleblower plaintiffs, establishes new criminal offenses and increases the punishment for health care offenses. The
Act also expands what many refer to as the private bounty hunter audit. This publication discusses these new weapons of civil and criminal enforcement. It addresses multiagency investigations, prosecutions and the oftendevastating collateral consequences. It is designed to serve as a ready reference for private practitioners and health care providers who deal with the enforcement aspects of health care. Whether it is the big business of the large-scale provider such as a hospital or hospice or the day to-day operations of a small town pharmacy or medical practice, the submission of bills for payment to the Medicare/ Medicaid Program or to insurance carriers has become a minefield for the unwary. Health care counsel must become familiar with civil and criminal enforcement and recognize the early warning signs of an investigation and the action that should be taken.

Service of Process in South Carolina, Second Edition John S. Nichols
One of the fundamental prerequisites to maintaining an action in South Carolina is proper service of process. If service is defective, then the validity of any judgment obtained may be challenged and the judgment overturned. Service of Process in South Carolina, Second Edition fully updates the first edition released in 2006 and adds a new section on service in other countries. This handy resource is an attempt to compile rules, statutes and pertinent case law into one source to serve as a quick reference to answer most of the questions regarding proper service of process. The primary focus of the book is on state practice, although federal practice is similar to South Carolina state procedure. The federal rule is provided where the differences are noteworthy. As an added bonus, sample forms are included as examples of ways to perfect service. Some of the sample forms found on the CD include: a summons, affidavit of service, petition for Order of Publication, and a waiver of service. 2009 Edition

So You’re Going to Try Your First Case, Second Edition Warren Moïse
SoYou’re Going to Try Your First Case . . . . Second Edition A Primer for Federal and State Jury Trials in South Carolina
Warren Moise Charleston, South Carolina
It’s back and better than ever! Good news for trial lawyers–one of the South Carolina Bar’s most popular and important books is now fully updated in a Second Edition. And it couldn’t come at a better time. Advocacy of South Carolina’s trial lawyers is unsurpassed in the nation. But it’s no exaggeration to say that trial practice itself is on the decline across America. Legal journals cite statistics showing the number of jury trials diminishing dramatically. No longer is trial advocacy a required course in either of South Carolina’s two law schools. Because most cases settle, very few lawyers try jury trials anymore. In large firms, it’s not uncommon for litigation associates and partners alike to practice law for a decade or more without ever trying a case to a verdict. Just as common are lawyers in smaller firms who shy away from the courthouse rather than having their own lack of courtroom skills exposed. Fortunately, most trial procedure is not rocket science. However, until you learn the rules, a courtroom can be quite unnerving to new trial attorneys. If you have yet to try a jury trial, or haven’t done so in a while, So You’re Going to Try Your First Case (Second Edition) is for you! This book is designed to give lawyers the up-to-date procedural rules and insider knowledge they need to get through a federal or state jury trial in South Carolina. So You’re Going to Try Your First Case . . . . is written by veteran, practicing trial attorney Warren Moïse, recipient of the South Carolina Bar’s first Trial and Appellate Advocacy Award. He was formerly an adjunct professor at the USC School of Law and now teaches evidence and trial advocacy at the Charleston Law School. So You’re Going to Try Your First Case. . . gives you strategy, tactics and courtroom basics such as: How do I strike a jury? How do I make a Batson motion? What is an “offer of proof,” and how do I make one? Which magic words do I use for directed verdict motions or for asking experts their opinions about causation (a.k.a the “most probable rule”)? Should lawyers rise when jurors enter the courtroom? What can I say and not say? If you’ve never tried a jury trial, haven’t done so recently or are an out-of-state lawyer about to try a case in South Carolina–you need this book! 2009 Edition

South Carolina Trial Objections Manual Hon. Timothy L. Brown
"This is an invaluable book for lawyers young and old. Dealing with objections, choosing which objections to make, and deciding when not to make an objection are easier said than done. I know of no other book like this one." E. Warren Moïse continued on next page
south carolina civil trial techniques handbook, continued.
The South Carolina Trial Objections Manual is intended to provide a ready resource of often used objections. Objections are listed alphabetically and since the same objection is sometimes made or understood by a different keyword, the objection may be listed under more than one heading. Following each objection are citations to the relevant rules of evidence, procedure, statutory or case law and a brief statement of the law to assist in answering or ruling on the objection. What makes this book truly unique is that every single case citation, rule of law and statutory reference is hyperlinked to the full text. The fully automated electronic version of the book is included with every purchase and makes this resource a stand-alone research tool. It took Judge Brown more than two years to compile and automate this incredible research tool. And along with an amazing compilation of objection material, Judge Brown has also included an article on the admissibility of children's out-of-court statements; the S.C. Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure; S.C. Rules of Evidence; S.C. Rules of Family Court, Magistrate Court and Probate Court; S.C. Rules of Procedure for the ALC; S.C.

Probate & Estate Planning
Book of Estate Planning Questions and Answers, Second Edition Albert C. Todd (1950 - 2005) Edited by W. Steven Johnson and William M. Reynolds III
This guide is not a textbook on estate planning for practitioners, but is rather a conversational guide for the estate planning client or layperson. It is, in written form, the questions with answers that Al Todd most frequently received from his clients in the course of his more than 27 years of estate planning practice. It provides a practical, down-to-earth overview of complex questions, but should not be used as a substitute for qualified legal advice. Instead, the attorney should use the book as a reference for his or her clients and
The Lost Art: An Advocate’s Guide to Effective Closing Argument, Third Edition Hon. Joseph F. Anderson Jr.
The Lost Art: An Advocate’s Guide to Effective Closing Argument is a comprehensive survey of both the art and the law of closing argument. Part I is a trial-advocacy composition with practical pointers on preparing and delivering an effective summation. Part II is a compendium of the law of closing argument–the cases that define the boundaries beyond which a lawyer may not venture. Part III is a collection of more than 250 closing argument segments dealing with proof, circumstantial evidence and damages. The revised and expanded Third Edition of this book contains an additional 40 pages of arguments and new text. Unlike many collections of closing arguments, this volume reprints only the most usable portions of each. While the collection includes excerpts from historically significant cases, its focus is on frequently recurring issues. It draws, therefore, primarily from typical cases that were argued uncommonly well. These courtroom classics, along with the collection of quotations contained in the final chapter, can form the nucleus of an effective summation, allowing the busy litigator to draw on the talents of many fine lawyers in a matter of minutes. S.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Jean H. Toal, who wrote the foreword, describes the publication as “an eminently practical book . . . that will be a jewel of an addition to the library of any trial advocate.” 2008 Edition #565
the layperson should use the book as a guide to be better prepared when seeking help from his or her estate planning lawyer. Simply put, this book contains the answers to the questions that most people are asking–thus the answers are phrased in terms of “WDRPD–What Do Real People Do.” The questions and answers are written conversationally and simply. The book is not packed with a lot of legalese and includes concrete examples and diagrams where they are helpful. It is not written to be read like a novel or a textbook. It is written with the premise that most people will look up specific topics or specific questions. The Book of Estate Planning Questions & Answers, Second Edition is just what its name implies - a straightforward, conversational resource for the most common estate planning questions that virtually everyone asks. It is unintimidating yet insightful. But most of all it is practical, and it is the perfect starting point for planning one’s estate, whether large or small. 2008 Edition #311

Handbook for South Carolina Dirt Lawyers, Second Edition Claire T. Manning
The Supreme Court of South Carolina is issuing opinions in almost every set of Advance Sheets disciplining real estate lawyers for discrepancies in their closing practices. Forces outside South Carolina are attempting to remove the closing process from the purview of lawyers. The downturn in the housing market is increasing foreclosures and decreasing sales.

This straightforward book will be beneficial for every South Carolina real estate practitioner and their staff members. It was written with the intention of helping “dirt lawyers” stay out of the Advance Sheets and in their closing conference rooms. The Second Edition was written to add materials concerning the 2006 American Land Title Association policy forms and endorsements as well as many sections suggested by readers of the First Edition. 2008 Edition

South Carolina Boundary Law Compendium, Second Edition L. Kimble Carter, P.L.S.
The South Carolina Boundary Law Compendium, Second Edition is a thoroughly researched, logically organized and concise guide to the often complex and arcane rules of boundary law in this state. This handy, affordable and reliable reference is a “point of beginning” from which to start the process of investigation, analysis and determination for virtually every boundary law question or dispute you will ever encounter. The practice of land surveying has experienced significant technological advances in recent years which has made it possible to more easily collect precise, but not always accurate, field data. These technological advances have provided surveyors with the ability to collect greater quantities of precise and oft-times competing data within a relatively short period of time. Thus, although legal matters have always been given serious consideration by surveying professionals in the determination of boundaries, surveyors are necessarily having to more often call upon their knowledge of the law of boundaries. continued on next page

Books That Inspire
Flame-out: From Prosecuting Jeffery MacDonald to Serving Time to Serving Tables
Published by Leslie Books, L.P.
In a criminal courtroom, three important chairs face the judge and the witness stand–one for the prosecutor, one for the defense attorney and one for the defendant. Jim Blackburn has sat in all three. In 1979, Jeffrey MacDonald, doctor and former Green Beret, stood trial for the vicious killings of his pregnant wife and two small children. Previously, in 1970 the U.S. Army had found the charges against MacDonald to be “not true.” But by 1979, Jim Blackburn sat in the prosecutor’s chair when a North Carolina federal jury determined otherwise. Years later Blackburn moved to the defense attorney’s chair. At the pinnacle of his career, he fell from grace. In addition to suffering from severe depression, he had signed judges’ signatures on a case that he had only pretended to take to court, and he had misused firm monies as well. Caught, he left the practice of law, entered intense therapy, and spent a brief time in prison. Flame-out is a true story chronicling Blackburn’s life from the height of his career prosecuting MacDonald,
through severe depression, a ruined legal career, imprisonment and his eventual recovery. 2006 Edition
I Remember Atticus
Published by The State Bar of Texas
Jim M. Perdue
Well-known personal-injury plaintiff’s attorney and respected legal author Jim M. Perdue explores the origins of our modern civil justice system to reveal its deep spiritual and philosophical roots in his latest work, I Remember Atticus: Inspiring Stories Every Trial Lawyer Should Know. Inspired by the character of Atticus Finch in Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, Perdue reminds us of the qualities of faith, freedom, equality, courage and perseverance that inform the American spirit—values without which justice cannot prevail. The stories in this book are an indispensable resource for the trial lawyer seeking more effective persuasion techniques. Perdue gives generously of his wealth of experience to show the novice and veteran alike how to use our core values for practical advocacy. And he does so in a way that entertains, informs and inspires. 2004 Edition
