Here are a few pictures of the new North Carolina Business Court in Raleigh, thanks to Judge Jolly and his staff giving me a quick tour yesterday. The Court moved to the Campbell Law School’s new Raleigh building on October 1st.
You’ll see that there is a broad stretch of windows behind the Judge’s bench, which look out on Hillsborough Street. Most new courtrooms don’t seem to have windows. In addition to letting in some natural light, these will prove useful for daydreaming during tedious trial moments.
Also, there are two colorful, modern paintings of downtown Raleigh in the courtroom. Those aren’t your typical courtroom art of former judges holding law books.
Beyond that, the courtroom has all the technological bells and whistles of the Business Courts in Raleigh and Charlotte.
