Officials in Berkeley, California lost their chance to build a much-needed new courthouse last month. An Alameda County commission assigned to decide where a new courthouse should go finally gave up after the Berkeley City Council failed to make up its mind and rejected a total of 24 locations over the last 12 years. Bickering within the Council, as well as powerful neighborhood interests who tend to oppose any changes in the community, were cited as factors responsible for calling it all off. “I don’t think people comprehend what losing the court would mean,” said Judge Ronald Greenberg. Judges will have to relocate to Oakland, and Berkeley residents won’t get a Berkeley jury.
