Re: Amendment to Rule 608(i), South Carolina Appellate Court Rules

Appellate Case No. 2016-000438


The Executive Director of the South Carolina Bar requests that Rule 608(i), SCACR, be amended to eliminate the requirement that clerks of court provide quarterly reports to the South Carolina Bar concerning the number and type of Rule 608 appointments.  We grant the request and amend Rule 608(i) to provide as follows:

(i) Records. Any records maintained by the South Carolina Bar, the circuit court, the family court, or a clerk of court relating to appointments under this rule shall be made available for review by any regular member upon written request of that member.

The amendment is effective immediately.
