No Knock Warrants Moratorium

In South Carolina, no-knock warrants that allow government officials to enter a dwelling or building without complying with the Federal Fourth Amendment requirement that officials knock and announce their presense has been suspended by The Chief Justice of the South Carolina Surpreme Court.

Order 2020-07-10-01 was entered July 10, 2020 and suspends the ability of all circuit and summary court judges in South Carolina from issuing no-knock warrants. The Court will be providing instruction to these judges about the approriate standards to be using to determine whether these warrants should be issued in the future.

Until such time as the training is provided, the Court has placed a moratorium on the issuance of such warrants.
