The South Carolina Supreme Court has recently established rules and procedures
for the voluntary use of the Fast Track jury trial process in South Carolina.
“A Fast Track Jury trial is a voluntary, binding jury trial before
a reduced jury panel and a mutually selected Special Hearing Officer.
The Fast Track jury trial process may be implemented by the Chief Administrative
Judge. This Administrative Order is effective March 7, 2013.” You
