SC Governor Appoints Melody James to WC Commission

This morning, Governor Nikki Haley sent a press release annoucing a new appointment to the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission.  Here is the release.
Columbia, S.C. – Governor Nikki Haley today announced the appointment of Melody James to the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission.
“We look for Workers’ Compensation Commissioners who will be fair – and not political – so that South Carolina can continue to be business-friendly and competitive, and that’s what we have found in Melody James,” said Gov. Haley. James serves as a Municipal Judge for the City of Cayce. James is also a partner at Mozingo & James Law Firm in Camden where she practices workers’ compensation defense litigation. A member of the S.C. Bar since 1987, James is a 1987 graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law and earned a Bachelor of Science in Accounting in 1984 from USC. James’ appointment is subject to the approval of the South Carolina Senate. Just last week, the Senate approved Gov. Haley’s appointment of Gene McCaskill to the SCWCC.
