Parts of Courthouse to Reopen Monday

A number of jury trials will resume next week, as several floors of the Milwaukee County Courthouse open to the public.

The courthouse has been closed all this week because of a fire last weekend

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.
