S.C. Supreme Court issues injunction opinion

In Breedlove v. Cramer, the Supreme Court reversed the trial court's denial of a temporary injunction. The Breedloves, demented and aged, were transferring assets to the Cramers. The Guardians for the Breedloves sought a preliminary injunction freezing the Cramers' Merrill Lynch account and any other accounts, assets, and personal property purchased or acquired with the $2 million obtained from the Breedloves. The trial court held that the Breedloves were required to use attachment to preserve the disputed assets until the disposition of the case. The Supreme Court held that this was not required in a equitable action.
