In their press release the court stated:
“The new court facility will house four trial courtrooms, one large traffic/small claims courtroom, one large arraignment courtroom, in-custody holding cells, jury assembly space, a staff training room, clerks’ offices, public service windows, judicial chambers, jury deliberation rooms, and judicial library/conference rooms. The new courthouse replaces an existing and severely over- crowded nearby two-courtroom facility that long ago outgrew the needs of the community. Exponential population growth in the Banning Pass over the past 10 years, coupled with an increase in criminal filings, interstate traffic flow directly through the city, and civil disputes, has increased the caseload far beyond the capacity of two courtrooms and two judges.”
As anyone who has had to drive out to Banning knows, it’s pretty far removed from most other metropolitan areas.
