Lead Consultants Take Your Questions about Plans for New Justice Center

CLEVELAND - November 16, 2020 - Last week, the Cuyahoga County Justice Center Steering Committee met to consider the future state of the Cuyahoga County Justice Center. During the meeting, the Committee unanimously agreed upon two critically important items:

  • a new county jail will be built outside of downtown Cleveland, separate and apart from the courthouse; and
  • the county will either build a new courthouse on a site in downtown Cleveland or the existing county courthouse will be renovated.

So what comes next? The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association brings back Cuyahoga County’s lead consultants, Jeffrey Appelbaum and Andrew Cupples, in a live, moderated, interactive discussion. This Hot Talk happens live at a special time, Wednesday, November 18th via Zoom and Facebook Live from 4 to 5:30 pm. This moderated discussion will include ample time for CMBA members and the public to share your impressions and have questions answered.

CMBA has long advocated for attorneys to have a voice through the Bar about this critically important project.

Hot Talks are monthly lunchtime discussions, usually held on the first Tuesday of each month at the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association or via Zoom and Facebook Live under Covid-19 restrictions. They are open forums designed to create a productive dialogue about the most important issues facing our region. Hot Talks are always free and open to the public.
