5818 - Opternative, Inc. v. South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners

This appeal arises from Opternative, Inc.'s (Opternative) action challenging the constitutionality of sections 40-24-10 and 40-24-20 of the South Carolina Code (Supp. 2020). The trial court found Opternative lacked standing to challenge the statutes and granted summary judgment to the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, the South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners, and the South Carolina Optometric Physicians Association. We reverse and remand.
