Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-319
Submitted March 19, 2004 – Filed May 14, 2004
Ron C. Bennett, of Marion, pro se, for Appellant.
Robert E. Lee and Amy Wise, of Forence, for Respondents.
PER CURIAM: Ron C. Bennett appeals, contending the trial court improperly granted summary judgment to the respondents the State of South Carolina, the County of Marion, and Magistrate Lunette Cox. We affirm pursuant to Rules 215 and 220(2), SCACR, and S.C. Code Ann. § 14-8-250 (Supp. 2003), along with the following authorities: Taylor v. Medenica, 331 S.C. 575, 582, 503 S.E.2d 458, 462 (1998) (noting an issue which is raised but not argued in brief is deemed abandoned and will not be considered on appeal); Muir v. C.R. Bard, Inc., 336 S.C. 266, 298, 519 S.E.2d 583, 600 (Ct. App. 1999) (holding conclusory arguments may be treated as abandoned); Englert, Inc. v. Netherlands Ins. Co., 315 S.C. 300, 304, 433 S.E.2d 871, 873 (Ct. App. 1993) (noting a conclusory argument does not present any issue for consideration on appeal); Moody v. McLellan, 295 S.C. 157, 162, 367 S.E.2d 449, 452 (Ct. App. 1988) (stating an alternative ruling of the trial court in granting summary judgment that was not excepted to constitutes a basis for affirming the trial court and is not reviewable on appeal).
