Appeal From Lexington County
James O. Spence, Master-in-Equity
Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-088
Submitted February 2, 2009 – Filed February 12, 2009
Richie D. Barnes, of Irmo, for Appellant.
Walter B. Todd, Jr. and J. Derrick Jackson, of Columbia, for Respondent.
Richie D. Barnes appeals the master-in-equity's award of attorney's fees and
damages, arguing the master abused his discretion in hearing the matter and
erred in awarding attorney's fees and damages. We affirm pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following
authorities: Rule 220(b)(2), SCACR ("The
Court of Appeals need not address a point with is manifestly without merit."); State v. Tyndall, 336 S.C. 8, 16, 518 S.E.2d 278, 282 (Ct. App. 1999) ("Conclusory
arguments constitute an abandonment of the issue on appeal."); Solomon
v. City Realty Co., 262 S.C. 198, 201, 203 S.E.2d 435, 436 (1974) (holding
an issue is abandoned on appeal if argued in an incorrect single conclusory
statement that leaves the error assigned unargued).
SHORT, THOMAS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
