Myrtle Beach area attorney Lane Jeffries has been sued for perjury.
The Charlotte Observer first reported on this issue last March:
Allegations of secret payments and a cash-packed envelope being handed off in a parking lot were some of the “illicit” activity that occurred during the 2015 sale of an oceanfront motel.
Those two details highlight the latest filing in the ongoing lawsuit over the sale of hotels and a home near 7th Avenue in Myrtle Beach…
Today, perjury charges were filed in the case by plaintiffs Karon Mitchell, Kyle Mitchell, and Rabon & Rabon, Inc., against defendants: Attorney Lane Jeffries, McNair Law Firm, P.A., Atid Properties, Daisy Ridge, LLC, Friends of LBS, LLC, Sarah Ginsburg, Jacob Biderman, Gabriel Yosef, and Michelle Cohen.
The complaint states: There is no issue of material fact in dispute as to whether the sale of September 3, 2015 was procured by fraud and that Lane Jefferies, a member of the South Carolina Bar, was an active participant.
Lane Jefferies knowingly provided false testimony in a sworn deposition. Any additional explanation or affidavits that contradict his sworn deposition testimony must be considered a “sham affidavit” and cannot be considered by this Court in reaching its decision. Without Jefferies’ false alibis about the September Sales, he cannot mount a defense against Plaintiff’s claims, especially considering the admissions he provided in that same deposition.
Jeffries is the son-in law of S.C. Supreme Court Justice Kaye G. Hearn.
Jeffries is currently the Supervising Litigation Attorney at Anastopoulo Law Firm. During the period when the event occurred Jeffries worked under the supervision of Henrietta Golding at the [then] McNair Law Firm in the Myrtle Beach office.
