Accordingly, an opinion's number may include a suffix: "C" for a circuit court order; "CA" for an opinion of the Court of Appeals; "S" for a South Carolina Supreme Court opinion; "CPO" for the decisions of the Chief Procurement Officer; "DSC" for the District of South Carolina; and "4th Cir" for a Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals opinion.
  • Some cases have multiple opinions. For example, a case appealed from the Procurement Review Panel to the South Carolina Supreme Court might include opinions numbered 1984-13, 1984-13C, 1984-13CA, and 1984-13S. If any one court issues more than one opinion, the opinions will be numbered sequentially with Roman numerals. For example, two Procurement Review Panel orders in the same case would appear as 1984-13 and 1984-13(II). Two circuit court orders in the same case would appear as 1992-9C and 1992-9C(II).
