Ind. Courts - "Gary courthouse to be closed ‘until further notice’ "

That is the headline to this Aug. 29th story by Carrie Napoleon in the Gary Post-Tribune. Some quotes:

GARY — The Lake County Courthouse in Gary will be closed indefinitely following a small fire Thursday that damaged a key electrical component.

Lake County Commissioner Michael Repay, D-Hammond, said Friday the minimal smoke issues from the fire have been repaired, but a vital component of the electrical system has been destroyed.

“The component, a switch gear, has a long lead time for production and will cause the Gary Courthouse to be closed until further notice,” Repay said in a press release.

The story goes on with details of relocations of various court offices, where to file, etc. This story by Rob Earnshaw published the following day in the Post-Tribune gives more details about temporary relocations.
