Federal Courts Reducing Space to Save Money

The federal judiciary will hand over more than 66,300 square feet of underused office space in 31 court buildings across the county, saving $1.7 million in annual rent, the Blog of the Legal Times reports. Space in the offices will be returned to the U.S. General Services Administration, which manages court facilities, as part of a series of cost-saving measures the federal judiciary adopted to cope with budget cuts.
