closing of a courthouse

A ceremony on the steps of the Daniel Herrmann Courthouse yesterday afternoon was well attended by members of the bench and bar, active and retired; by Delaware's Governor and the Mayor of Wilmington; and by court house staff.

On a hot afternoon, promises to keep speeches short were broken as fond memories and stories of professional lives realized within the court house were shared in front of the columns of the Public Building. The place has meant a great amount to the people of Delaware, and to the legal community. It will be missed.
