S.C. Court of Appeals holds that there is no appellate jurisdiction in fee dispute cases

In Wright v. Dickey, the Court of Appeals considered an appeal from a decision of the Resolution of Fee Disputes Board of the South Carolina Bar. The Court noted that Rule 20 within SCACR Rule 416 provides that a party may appeal a final decision of the Board to the circuit court on certain limited grounds. No mention is made of further appeal and therefore no further appeal is authorized.
