Move begins to new Baton Rouge courthouse
BATON ROUGE - Workers have begun the process of moving files, supplies and furniture from the current courthouse to the new 19th Judicial District Courthouse in Baton Rouge.
The new courthouse will feature 27 courtrooms, security upgrades and other amenities. Some of those include extra space for potential jurors with internet hookups and a massive cafe that will serve breakfast, lunch and meals for jurors.
Different offices are moving at different times into the new building, and the entire move is expected to take a few more weeks to complete.
