S.C. Courts’ Openness in Settlements Could Spread to Other Jurisdictions

In South Carolina, thanks to U.S. Judge Joe Anderson and State Supreme Court Chief Justice Jean Toal, settlement records in cases involving public safety have been open for several years. That is a benefit to the public, according to a recent news report, because it lets consumers know just how dangerous a product might be. Judge Anderson recently testified in Washington about the need for openness in other jurisdictions.
