Description and Holding Information
1793-1816, Brevard's Law Reports
Reports of judicial decisions in the State of South Carolina (1793-1816): by the late Hon. Joseph Brevard, one of the associate judges, Vol. 1-3,
Charleston, W. Riley, 1839-40, all publ. (Vol. 3 of Brevard’s Law Reports is devoted to those of Judge Brevard’s decisions in the Constitutional Court
handed down between December Term, 1811 and April Term 1816. This means that to some degree Brevard, Vol. 3 duplicates Treadway’s Law Reports, Vol. 1-2
{see elsewhere on this site}. As explained in a preface to Brevard’s, Vol. 3: “In this volume, which completes the Reports of Judge Brevard, every
{Brevard} case reported by Treadway will be found, which will, of course, supercede the necessity of republishing the latter, now out of print; but this
volume contains many {Brevard} cases not reported by Treadway. In some few instances, where both have reported the same case, Treadway has been
selected; but in the great majority of the decisions of this character, they have been reported as left by Brevard in his MSS”. For the record, Vol. 3 of
Brevard’s holds fewer cases than does Treadway’s, Vol. 1-2. This is accounted for by the fact that Treadway includes decisions by other judges in
addition to Brevard for the 1811-1816 period.)
