Protests Cause Afternoon Closing Of Six Los Angeles Courthouses


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Los Angeles Superior Court Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile yesterday afternoon ordered six courthouses, including the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in downtown Los Angeles, closed for the rest of the day in light of protests.

Also closed were Long Beach’s Governor George Deukmejian Courthouses and the facilities in Pasadena, Hollywood, and Inglewood (both the main courthouse and the Juvenile Court building across the street).

There was no word as of presstime yesterday as to any closures scheduled for today.

Protesters are reacting to the May 25 killing in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a 46-year-old out-of-work bouncer, by police officer Derek Chauvin, who has been charged with murder.
