Closed entrance to Palm Beach County Courthouse creating long lines

Sun-Sentinel, http://www.sun-sentinel.com, Feb. 6, 2008.Got a court date at the Palm Beach County Courthouse? Leave home early, and maybe even pack some light reading to pass the time. Lines to get inside the courthouse on some mornings are the longest they have ever been, snaking under the arches and extending to the sidewalk as people wait to get screened by security. The long lines began in October after Palm Beach County closed the south entrance to the courthouse, which will save an estimated $200,000 annually on private security costs. Lawyers, witnesses, litigants, employees and potential jurors have waited as long as 30 minutes to reach the security checkpoint. By that time, they might be late for a court appearance or for their jury summons time.
