The Supreme Court of South Carolina
Re: Repository for Circuit, Family, Probate, Magistrate
and Municipal Court Orders
Pursuant to the provisions of Article V, Section 4 of the South Carolina Constitution,
I find that on June 25, 2002, Chief Justice Jean H. Toal issued an order finding that Administrative Orders relating to matters of the circuit, family, probate, magistrates and municipal courts of this state be filed at the Office of South Carolina Court Administration. The Office of Court Administration is charged with overseeing the trial courts of this state and ensuring the directives of these orders are carried out, and the June 25, 2002 order found Court Administration to be the appropriate repository for administrative orders.
I find, despite the June 25, 2002 order, administrative orders continue to be filed elsewhere.
I find Court Administration remains the appropriate repository for administrative orders.
It is ORDERED that the Office of South Carolina Court Administration shall continue to be the repository of all administrative orders. All administrative orders that have been inadvertently filed elsewhere and all future orders shall be filed at the Office of South Carolina Court Administration.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
