3 Even though the doors have been open for about a year now -- there are still many questions about the cost and operations of the new courthouse in Jacksonville. The new offices for the State Attorney still aren't open for business. They were supposed to be done last year. As Channel 4's Jim Piggott explains...that's just ONE of the many problems still surrounding the Downtown building. 3 00-0516-25133-141 For now the courthouse has been open with few problems ... But there are still questions about the way it was built and safety features.Currently the courthouse is operating under a temporary certificate of occupancy. It still has not passed a final inspection.. The plan is to do that next week.Right now no reason why this should not be a problem. However there is an inspection in place.
