Griffin prevails before SC Supreme Court

Proctor v. Whitlark & Whitlark, Inc. 414 S.C. 318 (December 4, 2015)

Jim Griffin prevailed before the Supreme Court of South Carolina on behalf of the firm’s client Whitlark & Whitlark, Inc., in a significant ruling. The Supreme Court ruled that a disgruntled gambler could not sue under the South Carolina Unfair Trade Practices Act to recover losses allegedly sustained while gambling illegally on video poker machines. The court reversed both the trial court and the South Carolina Court of Appeals, which had granted summary judgment to the plaintiff gambler.
