On a blustery October afternoon, U.S. District Judge Nanette K. Laughrey hosted tours of the new Jefferson City Courthouse for members of the Chamber of Commerce. The event was initiated by attorney Michael Berry as part of the Federal Practice Committee’s community outreach efforts, and Berry worked closely with the Chamber, the Clerk’s Office and Project Manager Brad Luecke to organize the tours and an educational presentation about the court. The new courthouse sits directly across the street from the historic Missouri State Penitentiary, and prior to the tours, over 100 business people gathered in the oldest standing housing unit on the penitentiary site. In an open house format, visitors were treated to hors d’oeuvres and refreshments courtesy of the Chamber. Judge Laughrey then updated the community leaders on the construction timeline and other topics of interest for the Western District’s Central Division.
