The new courthouse replaces perhaps the worst courthouse facility in the United States: the juvenile facility off of 27th avenue.
But one wonders what chief Judge Soto must have thought, when glancing at the civil courthouse just a few blocks away, standing in asbestos-ladden, mold-ridden splendor. With vultures appropriately circling the higher floors, the civil courthouse is demode, and stands as a constant, mocking and derisive reminder to Soto's failure last year to obtain funding for a new courthouse. The civil courthouse is her Israeli-Palestine conflict- an inscrutable problem seemingly incapable of a solution.
We wish those who will use the new children's courthouse well. We can't count the number of juvenile cases we have handled, because the next one will be our first one.
We just have one question: will the new courthouse spawn a blog?
Enjoy your weekend.
