The Supreme Court of South Carolina

Dedication of the Jean Hoefer Toal Conference Room

Tuesday, May 17, 2016


Retired Chief Justice Jean Hoefer Toal served the people of South Carolina for more than twenty-seven years as a member of the Supreme Court, including nearly sixteen years as its Chief Justice.

By our unscientific, yet likely accurate extrapolation, she participated in nearly 700 Agenda meetings, and at least an equal number of meetings with commissions, judges, and visiting dignitaries, all taking place in the Court's Conference Room.  It is unlikely if any previous, present, or future member of this Court has had, or will have, a more significant official presence in the Court's Conference Room.

Thus, by my authority as Chief Justice, and with the unanimous approval of the full Court, I hereby declare that the Supreme Court of South Carolina's Court Conference Room, will henceforth be know as the "Jean Hoefer Toal Conference Room" in recognition of her dedicated and impactful service to this Court and to the people of South Carolina.
