Chad Wyman Mead, Claimant, Petitioner,


Jessex, Inc. d/b/a Midlands Glass, Employer, and Uninsured Employer Fund, Carrier, Defendants,

of whom Uninsured Employer Fund is the Respondent.



This Court granted a writ of certiorari to review the opinion of the South Carolina Court of Appeals in Mead v. Jessex, Inc., 382 S.C. 525, 676 S.E.2d 722 (2009). The parties now ask this Court to approve the settlement agreement which includes a request to vacate the opinion of the Court of Appeals.

The settlement is approved and this matter is dismissed. Further, the opinion of the Court of Appeals is vacated.

s/Costa M. Pleicones                        J.

s/Donald W. Beatty                            J.

s/Kaye G. Hearn                                 J.

I believe that this is an appropriate case to seek a recommendation from the Court of Appeals before acting on the request to vacate the opinion. Rule 261(d), SCACR. Therefore, I would not act on the request to vacate until a recommendation is obtained from the Court of Appeals.
