The new Courthouse will now open on Monday June 4th. The delay was caused by failures in the fire control system of the new building. You can bet that a weeks worth of rescheduled hearings will be a logistical nightmare when the building does open.
So you think you're getting a new Courthouse -- not so fast Duval County. Officials say the new Courthouse has continued to fail in tests of the fire control system. The new plan is to move back into the old Courthouse on East Bay Street until the new building is ready for occupancy. Court officials plan on being back in the old Courthouse by next Monday, 6/11.
