The Very Interesting Courthouse

New, 6 comments

Downtown's federal courthouse (slated to be taken out of commission and replaced soon) has been declared a national landmark. The courthouse, built in the late thirties, was the site of the first ruling against public school segregation, as well as "paternity cases against Clark Gable and Charlie Chaplin, a breach of contract suit filed by Bette Davis against Warner Bros. and the 1973 federal government case against Daniel Ellsberg for leaking the 'Pentagon Papers'."
