County officials broke ground on a new civil court building in Fort Worth at the end of May. Estimated at $57 million, the 231,934-square-foot building is expected to relieve overcrowding at the Tarrant County Justice Center, where the county’s criminal and civil courts currently share space. Tarrant County’s population has grown along with the number of court cases filed, spokesman Marc Flake said. Featuring one large courtroom and 12 civil district courtrooms, the new building is expected to open in spring 2015.
