1 G-Bar News A Publication of the Greenville County Bar V. Clark Price William T. Clarke Courtney C. Atkinson Travis V. Olmert Jeff Weston Hunter Freeman President President-Elect Secretary Treasurer Editor Reporter PRESIDENT S ARTICLE By Clark Price Over 140 attorneys attended the Spring Luncheon at the Poinsett Club on March 14. The featured speaker was Judge Letitia Verdin, who delivered an excellent message on civility in the law. Two things Judge Verdin said inspired this month s letter. First, she mentioned that she enjoys watching documentaries. Second, in perhaps the most memorable of her remarks, Judge Verdin reminded us that we lawyers should strive to bring honor and respect to our profession by the way we conduct ourselves in the eyes of the public. She referred us to the South Carolina Rules of Professional Conduct, which describes attorneys as public citizens having special responsibility for the quality of justice. Judge Verdin commended to the audience the criteria the Greenville Bar has established for selection for the Tommy Thomason Award, and reminded us of Tommy s wonderful qualities as a respected and beloved attorney. Judge Verdin s remarks were relevant and well received. I will have more to say about Tommy later this year. I commend to Judge Verdin and to those of us who like her enjoy documentaries the 1964 film Point of Order. The subject of the documentary is the United States Senate Army-McCarthy hearings of These hearings were broadcast on live television and concerned an investigation into whether Senator Joseph McCarthy improperly pressured the Army to grant special privileges for Private David Schine, who before his induction was a member of Senator McCarthy s investigative staff. Senator McCarthy was the powerful and feared chairman of the Senate s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations in the early 1950s. McCarthy s power came largely from his public pursuit of alleged communists embedded in the United States government. The story of Senator McCarthy s rise and fall is of a scope far beyond my ability to recount. It has many layers and is a worthwhile subject for more detailed examination. Point of Order, a collection of recorded highlights from the hearings, offers an interesting perspective on the hearings and how they helped bring an end to McCarthy s career. Point of Order offers a dramatic example of how an attorney who possessed admirable qualities of character similar to those of Tommy Thomason could use those qualities to influence public opinion about Joseph McCarthy and his McCarthyism, and turn the course of American history. Joseph Welch was the lead counsel for the United States Army and was retained to defend the Army against claims made by McCarthy that the Army s investigation of Schine was motivated by communists which had infiltrated the Army. Welch was a partner at Hale & Dorr, a Boston law firm, was a Phi Beta Kappa, and a graduate of Harvard Law School. The difference in personality and demeanor of Mr. Welch versus Senator McCarthy and his assistant Roy Cohn is striking. Whether one accepts or rejects McCarthy s and Cohn s positions in the hearings, those attorneys come across in Point of Order as the bad guys snide, sarcastic bullies whose singular tactic is the personal attack and the accusation that the Army s witnesses are communist sympathizers. A Democratic member of the committee, Senator Stuart Symington, makes the point near the end of the documentary when he says Apparently every time anybody says anything against anybody working for Senator McCarthy, he is declaring them and accusing them of being communists!

2 247th edition Page 2 (Continued from page 1) In contrast, Attorney Welch appears to be a fairminded,, kindly advocate who even in the most heated exchanges displays respect for the process, the committee members, and, for the most part, the witnesses he examines and the attorneys he opposes. The climactic scene in Point of Order begins when Senator McCarthy, responding to a vigorous cross-examination by Welch of Roy Cohn by Welch, reveals that a young associate at Welch s firm, Fred Fisher, had once had communist ties. For those of you who did not know Tommy Thomason, you will see a hint of how Tommy practiced law in how Joseph Welch reacted to McCarthy s attack on the young Fisher. I will not try to recount Welch s response here. If you are interested, you may watch the documentary or you may find Welch s response to McCarthy on YouTube. The audience in the Senate chamber erupted into applause when Mr. Welch finished his comments and called on the Chair to call its next witness. In retrospect, the television audience was watching the beginning of the end of the era of McCarthyism, brought about by Joseph Welch s passionate defense of his young associate. There are a few moments in American television history that are so powerful and so poignant. I hope you will find the film and watch it. We have plenty of opportunities to get together in April and May. Family Court judges from all over the state are holding their annual convention here in Greenville this month.

7 247th edition Page 7 Jail Project Closing By Stephen J. Henry, Director, Law in Action We ended the Jail Project on June 30, It started over eight years ago as a pilot program to see if volunteers could help reduce jail overcrowding. Later, with the help of several annual grants from the South Carolina Bar Foundation, as well as financial support from Greenville County and the Hollingsworth Foundation, the Jail Project s impact was truly felt. For the past four years, Jail Project investigators have worked daily to reduce overcrowding at the Greenville County Detention Center and to provide due process for unrepresented pretrial detainees. Our investigators contacted police officers, victims, witnesses, family members, magistrates, prosecutors and employees to help gain early and safe release of jailed magistrate court detainees. Releasing these inmates has saved money for the county, helped process cases more quickly and provided much needed assistance to detainees. Some of the letters we have received from released inmates demonstrate the program s success has been more than the cost savings. For the past three years Law In Action has advocated strongly on behalf of indigent detainees for the right to counsel. As a result, indigent magistrate court detainees are now offered free lawyers as required by the United States Supreme Court. The right to counsel is now an integral part of the Greenville County criminal justice system. This fact is a credit not just to the Law In Action Jail Project but also to the many professionals who have embraced the 6 th Amendment and helped put it into action. It has been the cooperation of many people in our local criminal justice system that has made the Jail Project successful. We thank all of you. The Greenville County Detention Center has provided jail lists, set up interviews and provided records. The Solicitor s Office consented to personal recognizance bonds in appropriate cases. The magistrates have reconsidered and modified bonds for defendants based upon the results of our investigations. Bond Court has been a huge success, including the magistrate s cooperation in providing the right to counsel choice for all indigent detainees. Sheriff deputies have answered our calls and given us key information about cases so that the magistrates can reconsider bond conditions. The Circuit Public Defender s willingness to accept new court appointed cases has been essential in making the constitutional right to counsel a reality. The judges of the 13 th judicial circuit acted with clarity by issuing an important court order affirming the right to counsel case decisions of the United States Supreme Court. When we started this project, many pretrial detainees who faced 30 day charges stayed in the jail as long as six months before their cases went to trial. In October 2010, Chief Justice Jean Toal issued an order requiring bond release for any pretrial detainee facing a thirty day maximum sentence and who had been in jail for thirty days. This simply is the fair way to handle these cases. It also saves money. In Greenville, the Jail Project has been monitoring those defendants and obtaining their release for the past four years. During that time we estimated jail housing cost savings at over $1 million. Now that we have closed down the Jail Project, I would like to see the magistrates introduce a system to review bonds daily for minor offenses similar to what the Greenville City Court does. It might be necessary to add a staff person for this task but it will certainly pay dividends in the long run. One of the Jail Project s most important functions has been the investigation of bond factors. Defendants charged with disorderly conduct, breach of peace, public drunk and similar offenses should have their bonds checked at 3, 5 or 10 days. It makes no sense to keep someone in jail longer than a few days for these kinds of offenses. Investigation of other factors can also lead to early and safe release of jailed defendants. Some of those factors include: a victim s consent to release, a defendant s willingness to seek drug rehabilitation, payment of restitution in fraudulent check cases or an eyewitness s statement that conflicts with the initial information reported to the police. We have learned a lot in eight years and I hope we have made some positive contributions. On behalf of the many past investigators, volunteers, student interns and the Law In Action board of directors, thanks to everyone who has provided help and support to the Jail Project. Law In Action will continue to work with other projects.
