Ordering the Courts

The three divisions of the Memphis City Courts may be getting a new address. Since the courts have outgrown their current home in the Shelby County Justice Center at 201 Poplar, city engineers, council members and even judges have proposed several possible sites for a relocation. But with the city in financial straits, costs associated may make some of the locations unfeasible.

In the proposed police budget, $19 million is requested to reopen the department's former headquarters at 128 Adams. Because 128 Adams is a convenient location, City Council members also decided to make it the fourth possible site for the courts relocation. But if it's chosen, the building won't have room for all the police divisions and the city courts.
