Inside the new building is fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and lots of office space and courtrooms. The building will also house the Livingston Parish Sheriff's office, the District Attorney's office, the Clerk of Court, and judges.
Parish leaders say it took nearly $20 million to get the new courthouse, but it's well worth it. The current courthouse on Iowa Street had been there since 1941.
