The South Carolina Court of Appeals has withdrawn a published opinion that had affirmed a trial judge’s order dismissing Lawyers Weekly’s public records lawsuit against 9th Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson.
After being published on March 14, the decision vanished from the South Carolina Judicial Department’s website and was removed from the advance sheets.
Lawyers Weekly’s attorney, Desa Ballard of Ballard & Watson in West Columbia, reported that she learned late in the afternoon on March 15 that the decision had been “pulled” because of an incorrect citation and has yet to be “officially filed.”
