    Several floors in height. Entrance with long line in the AM with guards and a metal-detector...much like the airport setup with conveyor belt with scanner/x-ray for belts, shoes, bags, coats, etc for the "regular" people. The Judges and lawyers and other staff have a special entrance and walk "around" to an open path to enter without ever being "checked".

    Even prospective jurors have only to show the card they received in the mail and are ushered down the hall to a special juror escalator that takes them to the jury waiting room!

    The line is long, but not any 45 minutes long!
