Greenville judge elected to state Supreme Court


S.C. legislators elected John Few of Greenville, chief judge of the state Court of Appeals, to the South Carolina Supreme Court on Wednesday by a vote of 92-73.

Lawmakers chose Few over Appeals Court Judge H. Bruce Williams. A third candidate for the position, Ralph King Anderson, chief judge of the State Administrative Law Court, withdrew from the race before the vote.

The Legislature will again vote for a new justice on the Supreme Court next year after Chief Justice Costa Pleicones retires at the end of 2016.
