The state of Ohio is ordering county courthouses to resume jury trials again after they were shut down because of the pandemic. Hamilton County's presiding judge says the court has taken steps to keep people safe but if they have legitimate health concerns, they can stay home.

People filled the plaza, crowded the street and perched on a third story ledge of the Hamilton County Courthouse as the newly constructed building was dedicated Oct. 18, 1919. While you can't climb out the windows these days, Judge Melba Marsh is still hoping for a large crowd to mark the building's centennial.
