28068 - Hall v. UBS Financial Services Inc.
We answer three certified questions from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina. The first question asks whether at-will employment relationships are contractual in nature. The second and third questions concern the viability of causes of action for breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing and tortious interference with contractual relations in the at-will context.
28069 - Butler v. State
The Court holds the validity of a murder conviction based on the theory "the hand of one is the hand of all" does not depend on whether the person who actually committed the fatal act is also convicted. Relief Denied.
