“Equity Abhors a Charade”

September 6, 2012

The Honorable Garrison Hill, a Circuit Court Judge, in South Carolina recently wrote a very exciting and educational lower court equitable order dealing with the doctrine of judicial estoppel. The Court was kind enough to grant me permission to put in on this blog and I am doing just that. As Judge Hill so succinctly noted, in a memorial equitable opinion, “equity abhors a charade.” Read on, this Judicial Estoppel Circuit Court Order is worthy of study by lawyers and law students. A genuine thanks to Judge Hill for permitting me to post this opinion.
