SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Thomas C. Brittain ’75 has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America.  The induction ceremony in which Brittain became a fellow took place recently before an audience of 1,020 attendees at the 2006 annual meeting of the College in London.
