LETTER: State judicial section process is seriously flawed

To the editor:

00_icon_feedbackI would like to commend Cecilia Brown on her recent observations regarding the selection of circuit and Supreme Court judges in South Carolina. As pointed out in her article, the process is SERIOUSLY flawed.

Yet, the selection of magistrates is an even more deplorable process. I would like to request that she invest a little more of her time reviewing how magistrates are supposed to be nominated by the senator who serves the nominees’ respective senatorial district, approved by the local legislative delegation (and by) the Senate Judicial Committee and finally appointed by the governor.

The entire process is a joke.
