Fasano wants leaders to block move to 'Taj Mahal' courthouse



The 1st District Court of Appeal should be stopped from moving into its posh new courthouse, says Sen. Mike Fasano, chairman of the committee that controls budgets for the state's court system.

In letters to Gov. Charlie Crist, Gov.-elect Rick Scott and legislative leaders sent late Thursday, Fasano urged officials to put the move on hold and spend some time examining other ways to use the new building that critics have dubbed a "Taj Mahal."

But it looks to be too late. Two United vans were outside the courthouse about 6 p.m. Thursday. Story here.
