The Campobello Municipal Court in South Carolina plays a key role in the town’s legal system. It upholds the right of each party in a case to opt for a jury trial. In the absence of such a request, cases are typically heard and decided by a neutral magistrate in bench trials. This applies to both criminal and civil matters, ensuring fairness and impartiality. In civil cases, the request for a jury trial must be made at least five days before the scheduled bench trial. The court’s procedure allows for oral requests for jury trials, but written requests are preferred for record-keeping. This system underscores the court’s commitment to justice and the proper documentation of legal proceedings.
