Because of major renovations under way at the Birch Bayh Federal Courthouse in Indianapolis, the locations of judges’ chambers have changed and courtrooms have closed.
The renovations have also shut down elevators and blocked public corridors. Attorneys are asked to look for notices issued by the court so they are up-to-date on conference, hearing, and trial locations. It’s recommended that attorneys allow for extra time when arriving to navigate the areas under construction.
The construction is in conjunction with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. New fire and life safety systems and heating and cooling systems are being installed as the courthouse is being made more energy efficient. The construction is expected to be complete by late summer 2012.
Contact the District Court Clerk’s Office with any questions regarding the location of business scheduled before the court at (317) 229-3700.
