L.A.'s Hall of Justice may reopen for use

December 1, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
Los Angeles County is considering reopening its Hall of Justice. The building has been vacant since it was damaged in the Northridge earthquake 15 years ago. The board of supervisors has ordered its staff to prepare a report on how feasible it would be to use the building again.

Construction costs have dropped in the last year and more federal funds are available.

The 14-story building at Temple and Broadway was once home to the county courts, coroner, sheriff's and district attorney's offices.
