LIVINGSTON- People working in the Livingston Parish Courthouse say heavy rains last week stressed the need for a new building.

Water poured through the ceilings in several different offices.  Judge Bob Morrison says it happened late in the afternoon when many people were leaving work.  Morrison has led the charge for a new courthouse.  Plans call for a new facility to be complete around the end of 2014.

Judge Morrison says no critical items were damaged.  No evidence is kept in the judge's chambers.  He says computers and other equipment could have been damaged if no one was there when the leaks started.

Plans call for building the new courthouse at the parish complex near I-12 in Livingston.  Judge Morrison says the new facility will also be more secure than the current facility.
