Famous South Carolina Matrix Case

This case has been the subject of a great deal of discussion throughout the State. It deals with a mortgage foreclosure and the doctrine of equitable subrogation. In addition, a majority of the South Carolina Supreme Court held that it involved the unauthorized practice of law in the State of South Carolina. I am delighted to be posting now a future law review note, written by a third year Charleston School of Law student, Josh Crowfoot,  who has written a very interesting piece on the Matrix decision. Of course, his views are just that, his own views and this piece will officially be published in the Student Edition Section of the Charleston School of Law Review in the near future. I thank Josh for writing it, I thank the Charleston School of Law for its permission to publish here (in its unofficial version) and I certainly invite readers to comment on this subject — pro and con. It is a highly contested topic — as the Court itself was quite divided on this issue.

      Thanks for your kind and gracious remarks.


      PS: I always welcome comments, suggestions, and even criticisms of what is posted here — but please remember when I post a student work –these are merely law students, they are doing the very best they can, invariably no law student has a great deal of real world experience yet as they are not members of the bar. So, if you have a criticism, please consider their relative youth and inexperience when you voice your comments and perhaps temper them somewhat because you are talking about law students.

      I am a little different, of course, as I am a professor and I have been around the block a bunch of times.

      Again, thanks to my many loyal readers. This blog apparently gets read each month — according to the word press statistics that are sometimes given to me — on average a couple of hundred of times each and every month — so I truly appreciate the many people who seem to find something of value on this site.

      PPS: I have some very exciting materials to post tomorrow. I went to a wonderful seminar last Friday and with the express permission of at least one of the speakers — I am going to be posting some information that I am sure that all my readers will find useful to read.
