S.C. Supreme Court holds that order to unseal the record of a divorce proceeding is immediately appealable
In Ex parte Capitol U-Drive-it v. Wallace, the Supreme Court considered whether an order to unseal the record of a divorce proceeding is immediately appealable. The court found the order was immediately appealable because the order issued by the family court unsealing the record determined a substantial matter forming the whole or part of the family court proceeding in which Capital sought access to the record of the Beavers' divorce and because after a court file is unsealed and the information released, no appellate remedy is likely to repair any damage done by an improper disclosure.
