Judge tells county he's leaving dilapidated courthouse

(AP) -

A judge who last month declared the Warren County Courthouse uninhabitable now says he's making plans to temporarily vacate the courthouse because of its deplorable condition.

Chief Judge Arthur Gamble informed the Warren County Board of Supervisors in a letter this week that the court was working with the sheriff and county attorney to find a new location.

The letter comes one month after a sewage smell nearly shut down the facility for the day.

Gamble says the court and its staff will likely move outside of the county until the building is repaired.

Warren County supervisors plan to meet with Gamble Monday morning to discuss the issue.
