Chief Executive Officer Valde Guerra reported that the courthouse was nearly shut down due to a major leak discovered on Friday by Facilities Management during end of week inspections.

Crews worked Friday evening and most of Saturday excavating the site and repairing the cause of the leak. Then, Monday morning, crews removed from 12 to 14 gallons of water from carpets and the hallway near the law library. After inspections, the consensus was that it was caused by the same leak that had been repaired, Guerra said.

"The issue was resolved, but does not detract from the problems we have at the courthouse," said Guerra.
