The Beverly Hills Courthouse in Beverly Hills CA succumbs to Budget Cuts
As most of us have been affected by the downturn of the economy in the past few years, one unlikely institution has succumbed to Budget Cuts as well.
Quietly without much fanfare the Beverly Hills Court House has closed its doors to hearing Court Cases. The famous visitors who made appearances in this venerable institution consisted of some of the famous or should I say the infamous Hollywood Celebrities such as: Zsazsa Gabor, Robert Downey, Jr., and Lindsey Lohan to name a few. There were many others whose names slip my mind right now.
Often times as I was driving down Burton Way I could see heavy traffic congestions. Then as I drove by the Beverly Hills Courthouse I could see the Paparazzi with cameras in hand and long lines of tourist standing by the entrance door wanting to have a glimpse at some of the famous accused celebrities.
Now the courthouse only handles traffic tickets. How strange to see a virtually empty building with hardly no life in it. The strange upside is that, now there are fewer tourists and less traffic on Burton Way. How sad, now I miss the drama, the traffic inconvenience and the pesky paparazzi and the tourists.
I am sure the Celebrities who need to make Court Appearances will miss the Beverly Hills Courthouse too, since now they will need to go to the Downtown Courthouses where the â€œcommon criminalsâ€ are being tried. Not as convenient as being five to ten minute drive from their upscale homes to face justice. Now it will be a commute to Downtown Los Angeles. Well that is punishment already!
