The Supreme Court of South Carolina
RE: Designation of Interim Chief Magistrate in Kershaw County
I FIND THAT Kershaw County Chief Magistrate R.E. Hartis has requested approval to resign as Kershaw County Chief Magistrate, but continue his duties as a Kershaw County Magistrate. Kershaw County Magistrate R.M. Todd has agreed to assume the duties as the Chief Magistrate of Kershaw County.
Therefore, 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 R.M. Todd be designated as Interim Chief Judge for Administrative Purposes of the Summary Courts for Kershaw County and his authority shall include, but not be limited to, the administrative purposes and acts set forth in my Order dated December 30, 2010, designating Chief Judges statewide.
The authority conferred on the Interim Chief Judge for Administrative Purposes of the Summary Courts for Kershaw County by this Order shall become effective immediately and shall continue through June 30, 2011, unless changed or revoked by Order of the Chief Justice.
