Tie to Murdaugh Case in a York County Court on this Thursday

YORK COUNTY, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – The family of Mallory Beach, the teen killed in the Murdaugh boat crash in February 2019, is in a York County courtroom on this Thursday.

The Beach Family attorney told media outlets one piece of wrongful death case was recently settled for $15 Million.

CN2 had a reporter in the York County courtroom on Thursday to get more details.

Beach’s attorney Mark Tinsley confirmed the only reason the case is being heard in our area is because of Judge Daniel Hall, who serves South Carolina’s 16th Judicial Circuit. When the judge was named for this legal hearing, he happened to be in York County.

Judge Hall approved a more than $15 million settlement between the family of Mallory Beach, and Greg Parker, the owner of a convenience store that sold alcohol to Paul Murdaugh on the night of the boat crash, despite him being underage.

In March 2023, a jury found-disbarred lawyer, Alex Murdaugh guilty of the murders of his wife Maggie and son Paul. He was then sentenced to life in prison.

Before his death, Paul Murdaugh was involved in a deadly boat accident that took the life of Mallory Beach. Paul was awaiting trial on those charges he was facing in connection with the February 2019 crash.

Beach’s attorney, Mark Tinsley said the court session was a mere formality, and a claims process will now follow to properly reimburse those with claims against Alex Murdaugh.

This settlement also means the lawsuit will not go to civil trial, which was previously scheduled for August 14th.
