Manigault v. Manigault is an unpublished April 2008 opinion from the South Carolina Court of Appeals.  In Manigault, I represented a husband who, prior to my representation, failed to show up for trial and was not happy with the result.  He retained me to petition the family court to reopen the case based on his confusion regarding the final hearing.  The family court agreed to reopen the case and his wife appealed.  The Court of Appeals affirmed the family court’s decision, finding that the family court judge did not abuse her discretion in reopening the case.
