Description

Doug MacKelcan and Clinton Magill obtained a dismissal for their community association client in Beaufort County, South Carolina.  The plaintiffs originally brought claims for civil conspiracy and slander against the association.  After an early motion to dismiss was filed, the plaintiffs amended their complaint and dropped the association from their slander cause of action.  Doug and Clinton proceeded with their motion to dismiss against the plaintiffs’ amended complaint, arguing that the plaintiffs had failed to plead special damages in their civil conspiracy cause of action.  The Circuit Court agreed and ultimately dismissed the plaintiffs’ final remaining claim against the association.
