Beginning in October, three of the bankruptcy judges in the Southern District of Indiana will be relocating their courtrooms because of construction at the Birch Bayh Federal Building and United States Courthouse.
On Oct. 4, Judge Basil Lorch III will resume hearings in Room 310, his original courtroom. Chief Judge Anthony Metz III will move back to his original courtroom – Room 311 – on Oct. 5. The two had been holding court in temporary spaces since April.
Judge James Coachys’ chambers and courtroom will become unavailable Oct. 12. He will conduct hearings on the first Tuesday of the month in Room 311, with all other hearings conducted in Room 310. Judge Frank Otte’s courtroom and chambers are not affected by the construction at this time.
