The State documented the failings of South Carolina's magistrate system. Magistrates hear two-thirds of the state's court cases, and lawmakers keep giving them more authority because it's the cheapest way to handle court cases. But many magistrates have little legal training, make basic legal mistakes, and don't have enough money or staff to do their jobs. Bad magistrates receive little punishment. (March 16-17, 1996)
