A number of jury trials will resume next week, as several floors of the Milwaukee County Courthouse open to the public.
The building has been closed this week, because of smoke and electrical damage from a fire last weekend.
The county executive’s office says crews continue to work around the clock to clean up from the smoke, in hopes that floors 5-7 of the courthouse can reopen on Monday. That would allow all criminal, family, small claims cases and jury trials to resume.
