Plan for New Downtown L.A. Courthouse Criticized

Monday, August 20, 2012

Although construction on a federal courthouse is slated to begin this year, two congressmen are speaking out against a plan that would add a third courthouse and another federal office building in downtown Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Times reports that Rep. Jeff Denham, a Republican from Atwater in Central California, called the proposal a "sham" at a hearing and said the judiciary would not need more space if its judges shared courtrooms more efficiently.
