The Judges remind the bar that SC LBR 5075-1 delegates the service of a variety of orders, including, for example, orders confirming plans, orders on motions to reconsider dismissal, and orders on motions to extend stay.  The docket text generated upon entry of the order reflects, and should remind you, whether the order is a delegated service order.  SC LBR 9013-3 requires filing certificates of service.  It appears that many attorneys either are not serving delegated orders or are serving orders but not filing certificates of service.  Failure to comply with the Local Rules may affect the enforceability of these orders.  Please review your internal office procedures to ensure that you are in compliance with the Local Rules.

The Court has released a new and improved opinions search feature on its website.  The opinions feature now allows a user to narrow the search by both search terms and Judge.  Additionally, the search terms feature has been enhanced.  To return results containing a particular phrase, use quotation marks around the entire phrase.  To return results containing a particular phrase within a certain number of words of another word or phrase, use quotation marks around the phrases and include "~[number of words]" between the phrases with no spaces.  For example, to search for automatic stay within 10 words of "debtor", use "automatic stay"~10debtor.  The Court will continue to review its search feature and will implement additional features and improvements as they become available.
