Bankruptcy Court article written by Columbia, SC bankruptcy attorney Daniel Stone
In South Carolina, we have three federal bankruptcy judges – Chief Judge David R. Duncan, the Honorable Judge John E. Waites, and the Honorable Judge Helen Elizabeth Burris. The three judges are spread out over three bankruptcy courts that cover Columbia, Spartanburg, and Charleston, South Carolina. Each Bankruptcy Court covers a certain number of predetermined counties. Each federal bankruptcy judge is appointed to 14 year terms.
