COLUMBIA, SC — A court hearing appears to be set for April 30 in the next round of public arguments in the once-secret push by S.C. House Speaker Bobby Harrell to stop State Attorney General Alan Wilson from pursuing criminal allegations against him.
The hearing, at 10 a.m. at the Richland County courthouse, was announced by one of Harrell’s lawyers, Gedney Howe. Howe told The (Charleston) Post and Courier, which posted the notice on its website.
But later Wednesday, the clerk of court of the State Grand Jury emailed, “Everyone will be notified of the date and time of the hearing in due course.”
“We haven’t been notified of any hearing,” said J. Mark Powell, the attorney general’s spokesman.
