From the paper today… the Scott County Courthouse (Davenport) will finally be getting security measures like every other courthouse I go to. Congrats!
I’m still a little concerned about the fact that most courthouses let anyone in without question as long as they are wearing a suit, carrying a briefcase, and carry themselves like a lawyer. At least Mercer County (or is it Whiteside… my memory escapes me at the moment) requires attorneys to show their Illinois Bar ID.
