JURIST FROM THE MIDLANDS TO PRESIDE IN OCONEE
A circuit judge from the South Carolina Midlands will preside in Walhalla next month during a term of the Oconee Common Pleas Court. The assignment of G. Thomas Cooper Jr. for the Oconee court week March 9 is believed to be the first time that Cooper will have held court in Oconee County. He is considered an active/retired judge from the state’s 5th judicial circuit–Richland and Kershaw counties. First up on the March 9 docket is a car accident dispute that involves a 2016 accident in Walhalla.
