Washington Courts: Press Release Detail

Starting on July 1, the courtroom, foyer and law library reading room in the Temple of Justice, the home of the Washington Supreme Court, will be closed to the public.

Members of the public will still have full access to the Office of the Clerk of the Court and the law library periodical room, located on the lower floor of the Temple of Justice. Members of the public are asked to access the Clerk’s Office and the library through lower level entrances, located at the north, east and west sides of the building.
Oral argument before the Supreme Court will not be affected by the construction.
Up-to-date information regarding construction on the Capitol Campus can be obtained by visiting the Department of General Administration’s alert site, located at http://www.ga.wa.gov/alert.html
