Access Denied

A magistrate was placed on interim suspension by order of the South Carolina Supreme Court. The order contains an interesting provision:

...respondent is prohibited from entering the premises of the magistrate court unless escorted by a law enforcement officer after authorization from the Chief Magistrate of Horry County.  Finally, respondent is prohibited from having access to, destroying, or canceling any public records and he is prohibited from access to any judicial databases or case management systems. This order authorizes the appropriate government or law enforcement official to implement any of the prohibitions as stated in this order.
