New Building

The Franklin County Court of Common Pleas – General Division, in conjunction with the Franklin County Board of Commissioners, is in the process of building a new courthouse.

The new Franklin County Courthouse, completed in 2010, physically symbolizes both the literal and figurative concepts of Transparency of Justice through the inclusion of vast areas of glass across the building's facade.

Much more than symbolic, the glass is an integral component in the building's energy conservation systems, making this the first LEED certified courthouse in the State of Ohio
