The Supreme Court of South Carolina
Re: Interim Appointment of Dorchester County Associate Chief Magistrate
The judges of the summary courts of South Carolina being a part of the uniform statewide judicial system and pursuant to the provisions of Section 4, Article V, South Carolina Constitution,
IT IS ORDERED that Judge M.D. Murphy be designated as Associate Chief Judge for Administrative Purposes of the Summary Courts for Dorchester County and, in the absence of the Chief Magistrate of Dorchester County, her authority shall include, but not be limited to, the administrative purposes and acts set forth in my Order dated December 16, 2008, designating Chief Judges statewide.
The authority conferred on the Associate Chief Judge for Administrative Purposes of the Summary Courts for Dorchester County by this Order shall become effective immediately, and shall continue through June 30, 2009, unless changed or revoked by Order of the Chief Justice. This Order supercedes the Order dated December 16, 2008, appointing Chief Magistrates statewide, only as it pertains to the Associate Chief Magistrate in Dorchester County.
