The State

Five judges from across the state and two private attorneys are running for a vacancy on the five-member S.C. Supreme Court that will open up in January upon the retirement of Chief Justice Costa Pleicones.

The two private attorneys are John Nichols and Matthew Richardson, both of Columbia.

The judges seeking a seat are Administrative Law Chief Judge Ralph King Anderson III and state judges Diane Goodstein of Summerville, George James Jr. of Sumter, Keith Kelly of Moore and Carmen Mullen of Hilton Head.

In another judicial race, Circuit Judge Alison Lee of Columbia has filed for an open seat on the S.C. Court of Appeals. She will be running against Judge Garrison “Gary” Hill of Greenville and private attorneys Rene Jose of Florence and Blake Hewitt of Conway.
