v.

Appeal From Laurens County
 Brooks P. Goldsmith, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-134
Submitted February 1, 2008 – Filed February 27, 2008


AFFIRMED


Andrew M. Jones, III, of Greenville, for Appellant.

Edward D. Sullivan, Christian Stegmaier, both of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:    Karen Irby brought suit against Augusta Lawson for damages Irby suffered due to a temporary injunction that prevented her from using her property.  Irby appeals the circuit court’s order granting Lawson’s motion to dismiss pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6), SCRCP.  We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b)(2), SCACR, and the following authorities: Glasscock, Inc. v. U.S. Fidelity and Guar. Co., 348 S.C. 76, 81, 557 S.E.2d 689, 691 (Ct. App. 2001) (“South Carolina law clearly states that short, conclusory statements made without supporting authority are deemed abandoned on appeal and therefore not presented for review.”); and Harris v. Bennett,  332 S.C. 238, 245, 503 S.E.2d 782, 786 (Ct. App. 1998) (“[A]n issue may not be raised for the first time on appeal, but must have been raised to and ruled upon by the court below to be preserved for appellate review.”).

AFFIRMED.

HEARN, C.J., CURETON, A.J., and GOOLSBY, A. J., concur.


[1]  Because oral argument would not aid the court in resolving the issues on appeal, we decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
