On the evening of August 4, 2022, the Court will begin the process of reassigning existing cases in the Charleston division to Judge Elisabetta G. M. Gasparini. New cases in that division will also be assigned to Judge Gasparini beginning on that date. Please consult the case docket prior to action, as it will indicate any change in judge assignment. Judge Gasparini’s self-scheduling calendar can be found under the Court Information, then Self Scheduling Calendars tabs. It is anticipated that hearings will proceed as scheduled in Charleston without disruption regardless of any change in judge assignment.
After this change, case assignment is as follows:
Greenville Division: Burris- all cases; Duncan- conflict judge.
Charleston Division: Gasparini- all cases; Duncan- conflict judge.
Columbia Division: Burris- Chapter 13 cases from Aiken, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun, Chester, Darlington, Dillon, Edgefield, Lancaster, Lee, Marion, or Richland Counties (Trustee Mathews), and all existing cases under any other chapter previously assigned; Duncan- all others; Gasparini- conflict judge.
Further case assignment changes are likely in the coming months.
