As has become somewhat common place, going to downtown Seattle is no longer on the front end of anyone’s list, even during holiday seasons. It is in a word – dangerous. This is especially true down by the King County Courthouse on 3rd and James.
Earlier this week the Presiding Judge, Jim Rogers, became so concerned about safety near the courthouse that he took the aggressive and unprecedented measure of closing the court’s main entrance until at least the beginning of January. And for good reason – a man outside the courthouse recently attacked/ assaulted a well known – and well respected – attorney and a bus driver who came to his aid.
Entry points for the court are now on 4th avenue, and via an underground tunnel between the court and the King County Administration building. Anyone trying to get into the courthouse best be prepared for long delays and long lines … as if that weren’t already a frustration for patrons entering the building. Happy holidays indeed.
