Why no court action???

On July 10, 2019, the South Carolina Ethics Commission filed a $51,750 Judgment in Richland County Common Pleas Court against Amelia McKie. This Judgment followed an Ethics Commission Decision & Order of July 2018, which had gone unpaid for an entire year.

According to court records for Case No. 2019CP4003809, absolutely nothing is happening with this case.

Why do the judge in the Common Pleas Court and the Chief Judge allow cases to just sit with no action? Why isn't the Ethics Commission's attorney in court every 60-90 days, asking the court to take action, such as ordering the S.C. Department of Revenue to take effective collection action?

Last time I checked with the Ethics Commission, McKie had not paid one penny toward this judgment. 

Is she broke? Facing bankruptcy? Yet still sitting at the Board of Trustees of the Richland 2 School Board?

Notice that I don't write "on" the Board, because she, like Teresa Holmes, is not a legal board member. McKie and Holmes have never taken the oath of office legally.
