MyrtleBeachSC News was informed today by email that Horry County Schools prevailed in the City of Myrtle Beach’s attempt to terminate the school’s current lawsuit by way of a SC Supreme Court appeal. The appeal was denied. The court case continues.
By way of background, Judge Carmen Mullen rules in our favor for the TIF lawsuit to continue and not be dismissed. Shortly after Judge Mullen’s ruling was issued, the City of Myrtle Beach filed a Writ of Certiorari with the South Carolina Supreme Court for the matter to be reviewed and not to continue at the Circuit Court level.
Today, the South Carolina Supreme Court issued its Orders and has DENIED the City’s Petition for Original Jurisdiction and, also, has DENIED the City’s Petition for Writ of Certiorari. Please see the attachment. This means that the case will remain in Circuit Court with Judge Mullen presiding.
