Tulare County Superior Court judges, staff and dignitaries dedicated the new South Valley Justice Center courthouse in Porterville at a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday.
The three-story, nine-courtroom building replaces an aging court in Porterville and will be used to hear cases from the south half of Tulare County.
The project, budgeted at $93.4 million, is one of several new courthouses being built around the state. It opens for business Oct 15.
