28192 - The State v. Stacardo Grissett

The Court reverses the court of appeals because although the issue raised is moot, it is one capable of repetition yet evading review. On the merits, we find section 24-21-560(C) requires a community supervision program (CSP) inmate receive credit toward a CSP revocation sentence for time served in jail awaiting adjudication of an alleged CSP violation.

28193 - Stephen R. Edwards v. Scapa Waycross, Inc.

We affirm the court of appeals' decision in Edwards v. Scapa Waycross, Inc., 437 S.C. 396, 878 S.E.2d 696 (Ct. App. 2022). We reaffirm South Carolina's adherence to the substantial factor causation test we adopted in Henderson v. Allied Signal, Inc., 373 S.C. 179, 644 S.E.2d 724 (2007).
