Last month, South Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Jean Toal sent out notices to court administrators in all 46 counties in the state, mandating that all cases of driving under the influence (DUI) and driving with an unlawful alcohol concentration (DUAC) greater than 120 days old for defendants requesting jury trials and 60 days for those who had not requested a jury trial be resolved.
The order on the DUI cases was a follow-up to a February order in which Chief Justice Toal informed state, municipal and magistrate court officials that all civil and criminal cases are to expedited. In order to accomplish this goal, Toal suggested holding trials in the late afternoon or early evening on weekdays, and if necessary, on Saturdays.
