Ind. Courts - "Judge Fee Pitches Renovated Courtroom To Commissioners"

From WLKI 100.3, this story Monday:

(ANGOLA) - Steuben Superior Court Judge William Fee asked County Commissioners on Monday to get the ball rolling in order to create more space in the second floor courtroom at the County Courthouse. Things were rather cramp in the courtroom during the recent Zao Burrell murder trial and Judge Fee said another high profile case is scheduled to go to trial soon. There were so many prospective jurors for the Burrell trial that it took a couple of days to select a jury because there was not enough room to seat everybody. There was also a discussion about making the courtroom more handicapped accessable. Commission Chair Ron Smith told the judge he would have his answer within 45 days after they have had a chance to discuss funding with the County Council.
