The Supreme Court of South Carolina
In the Matter of Jane M. Randall, Respondent.
Appellate Case No. 2023-000665
On May 31, 2023, this Court issued an order placing Respondent on interim suspension and appointing Peyre T. Lumpkin as Receiver to protect the interests of Respondent's clients. In re Randall, S.C. Sup. Ct. Order dated May 31, 2023 (Howard Adv. Sh. No. 22 at 18). On June 2, 2023, Respondent filed a petition for rehearing requesting that the Court reconsider the appointment of the Receiver as there is now an experienced lawyer associated with her firm, Carol Nash N. Hare, Esquire, who is willing and capable of acting as a responsible party under Rule 31(c), RLDE, Rule 413, SCACR, thereby obviating the need for appointment of the Receiver.
The Court finds Ms. Hare is capable of and shall be responsible for the protection of Respondent's clients, and thus, appointment of the Receiver is unnecessary in this matter. Accordingly, the Receiver's appointment is hereby terminated. The Receiver shall transfer possession and control of Respondent's client files and law office accounts and, if necessary, notify the United States Postmaster to redirect Respondent's mail to Ms. Hare's address. Ms. Hare shall ensure Respondent's clients are notified that she is now the firm's responsible party.
