County officials are in talks with All Aboard Florida about a possible public-private partnership to build a new courthouse in downtown Miami, according to Miami Today.
Chief Judge Bertila Soto has been leading a campaign for new facilities. The County is currently spending $30 million to repair the existing courthouse which was built in 1925, but the court is said to have outgrown the current facilities. Dade is now the fourth largest judicial circuit in the country.
A deal with the county for a courthouse would add to a tangle of agreements that All Aboard already has or is negotiating with local, state and federal government agencies.
