Judge Who Made History Passes Away

(Columbia, SC)  --  A former judge is being remembered for the historic heights he reached in South Carolina.  

Former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Ernest Finney, Jr. passed away this weekend at the age of 86.  

In 1985, Finney became the first black judge on the state supreme court since Reconstruction, and he made history again in 1994 when he became chief justice.  

Governor Henry McMaster called Finney a remarkable man, an inspiration and the embodiment of the best of what we want the state to be.
