This courthouse is said to be haunted by a former judge who died after complications from surgery. Apparently, unable to let his work go, even after death, he continues to haunt the building. People claim that his chambers are colder than the rest of the building (no reports on the number of air vents and location of the specific chambers as of yet) and some people claim to get an eerie feeling in those specific rooms.
