Judge Questions Plans for New Judicial Building

Chancellor Robert Corlew III is concerned that county leaders haven't secured enough land to build a future judicial building in Murfreesboro. During an interview with the Daily News Journal, Corlew questioned the county's purchase of land a block north of the existing Judicial Building to build a new one to serve the fast-growing county. Corlew said the county might need to divide up the courts with the criminal courts being at one location and perhaps the civil courts remaining in the existing location.
