Due to the forecasted hazardous weather conditions, S.C. Emergency Management Division issued notice today of county closings in Darlingon, Dillon, and Marion. In the event that additional counties are closed, State Judicial employees are reminded to follow the same weather hazard decisions made by the county government officials where the state office is located. county and municipal employees working within the court system shall follow the weather hazard decisions made by the respective county or municipal government officials in regards to office delays or closings
Futher, I am directing that all courtroom proceedings in state, county, and municipal courts follow the directives of county or municipal government officials. Regarding bond hearings and court closures due to hazardous weather, a minimum of one bond hearing daily should be conducted, if at all possible.
