A dministrative L aw

South Carolina Administrative Practice and Procedure, Second Edition

Edited by Randolph R. Lowell

A dministrative law in South Carolina has undergone radical and pervasive changes in the last twenty 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. A dministrative 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 healthcare 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 The Honorable 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, and delineates the process of applying for those permits and licenses with the South Carolina Department of Revenue, and, if necessary, litigating matters related to those permits and licenses before the South Carolina 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

F amily L aw Child Support: Representing the Non-Custodial Parent NEW

Robert W. Rushing Jr.

Child Support: Representing the Non-Custodial Parent is the first book of its kind, addressing arguably the most prolific area of family court litigation. 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 as a guide 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 quick-study of the topics. 2008 Edition

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.

ng mi Co oon S

Children have special needs and are treated differently than adults by the court system. South Carolina Juvenile Law Resource Manual is a practical tool that will help the practitioner understand representing juveniles in Family Court. This nuts and bolts resource contains a brief history of juvenile law, and then guides you through the family court process. Author Blanche Richey describes and explains the family court procedure from the filing of the petition, taking into custody, detention, intake, diversion programs, waiver, adjudication, parole, and right to appeal. She even covers expungement of a child’s record. Andrea White addresses the impact of unconventional juvenile behavior on today’s educational system. She thoroughly covers topics such as suspensions, expulsions, alternative schools, searches and seizures in public schools, school resource officers and law enforcement on school grounds, “suspicion less” searches, and confidentiality of student records. All educational topics discussed are backed by cites to SC statutes and case law. Kathryn Barton’s material explores alternatives to juvenile court through the use of community arbitration programs. Since 1990, Ms. Barton has served as the Community Arbitration Program Director for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit (Lexington, Saluda, Edgefield, and McCormick counties). She focuses on the history of the Community Juvenile Arbitration program and outlines the “South Carolina Juvenile Arbitration Guidelines.” Ms. Barton’s material describes the program’s purpose with a detailed description. It also covers the eligibility of participants, referrals, arbitration hearing conditions, dispositions, community service/restitution, case closure, dismissals, and eligibility and training requirements of arbitrators.

With over 7,000 South Carolina children in foster care the material on this topic is the longest and most detailed chapter of the book. This chapter begins describing the various ways a child can enter the foster care system – from emergency protective custody (EPC), to court order, voluntary placement or through the Safe Havens Act. It also explains and clarifies the different types of foster care placements, outlines mandated reporters of child abuse, discusses the Central Registry of Child Abuse and Neglect and the Foster Care Review Board, reviews family court procedures and hearings, and much more. The role of the Guardian ad Litem is also discussed.

G overnment L aw Election Protests Under South Carolina Law Timothy E. Hurley

With the hundreds of primary, general, and special elections in the state each year, disputed elections are surprisingly common. Election protests, however, can be daunting for a lawyer. They arise suddenly, and they move with great speed because of mandatory statutory provisions. Counsel may be called upon to prepare and try a complex case within a very few days. Now there is a book that fully prepares the practitioner for these proceedings.

Published by the American Bar Association

H andling divorce and family law cases involving service members has never been timelier. As a result of the large number of recent National Guard and Reserve mobilizations, these complex issues will affect nearly all family lawyers, not just those whose practices are located near major military bases. Furthermore, due to the Pentagon overseas basing plans, more and more of these service members will be stationed back in the United States in the future. The knowledge contained in this handbook is essential for family law practitioners in order to provide professional representation for the service member or spouse as a client.

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 continued on page 14. . . 13

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

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.

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

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 USC Law School 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 Warren Moise Charleston, South Carolina


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? I f you’ve 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 The Honorable Timothy L. Brown

NEW

"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 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 book purchase and makes this resource a stand-alone research tool. It took Judge Brown over 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 South Carolina Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure; the SC Rules of Evidence; the SC Rules of Family Court, Magistrate Court, and Probate Court; the SC Rules of Procedure for the ALC; the SC US District Local Criminal Court Rules; and the Federal Rules of Evidence, Criminal and Civil Procedure.

Handbook for South Carolina Dirt Lawyers, Second Edition

The South Carolina Trust Code

Claire T. Manning

James C. Hardin III Professor S. Alan Medlin

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. Lawyers are continually pressured to reduce fees while maintaining a high level of service to clients. These materials are an attempt to help “dirt lawyers” deal with these issues in a practical way. 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.

The South Carolina Trust Code (SCTC) became effective January 1, 2006. It was the most significant codification of the law affecting estate planning and probate since the introduction of the South Carolina Probate Code in 1987. The SCTC codifies or recodifies some of the existing South Carolina statutory and common law, clarifies some issues not previously dealt with legislatively or judicially in South Carolina, and changes some of the existing SC law. This important publication explains the SCTC in depth, discusses how it affects South Carolina trust law, and advises practitioners about the SCTC’s impact on the estate planning and probate practice. In this helpful publication, the authors have included an appendix of forms. Sample forms found in the book include proof of delivery, motion for transfer of venue/principal place of administration, trustee’s notification to qualified beneficiaries and many more.

South Carolina Boundary Law Compendium, Second Edition L. Kimble Carter, P.L.S.

T he 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 have 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. This practical book includes an index and an appendix containing the full text of several of South Carolina’s most important boundary law cases, as well as valuable sample pleadings. 2003 Edition

Contempt of Court Mark Curriden Leroy Phillips Jr.

Published by Anchor Books

Contempt of Court is the true story of one of the most significant cases in United States legal history. Ed Johnson was arrested in 1906, put on trial, convicted, sentenced to die, and lynched - all within 60 days. That in itself does not make his story remarkable. But Ed Johnson’s story is about firsts, and it is a story that every South Carolina lawyer should read. While awaiting execution, Johnson’s life was temporarily spared when two African-American lawyers heroically stepped forward to successfully appeal his case to the US Supreme Court. One of those lawyers, Styles L. Hutchins, was one of the first African-American graduates of the University of South Carolina School of Law. Justice John Marshall Harlan issued a stay of execution marking the first time in history the Supreme Court intervened in a state criminal court case. But this victory was short-lived. Less than 48 hours later, a frenzied mob, assisted by the sheriff and his deputies, dragged Johnson from his cell and brutally lynched him. An outraged Supreme Court, for the first and only time in its history, brought criminal contempt charges against the sheriff and his associates. Then, in yet another historical first, the justices agreed to hear the contempt trial themselves. Now in its tenth printing and winner of the ABA’s Silver Gavel Award and the American Judicature Society’sToni House Award, Contempt of Court offers the rare opportunity to get an insider’s look at a critical juncture of American social history, as well as one of America’s truly seminal Supreme Court cases. American University Law Professor Mike Tigar said, “Every lawyer, every judge, and every law student should read this book to remind us why we practice law.” 1999 Edition

Flame-out: From Prosecuting Jeffery MacDonald to Serving Time to Serving Tables Published by James Blackburn

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 Jim M. Perdue

Published by The State Bar of Texas

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 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
