Aberdeen Trying To Return Federal Court To City

March 4, 2014, 12:43 PM


Workers will soon begin installing a new sprinkler system in the old Aberdeen federal courthouse in hopes that the renovation will help return court proceedings to the Hub City.

Aberdeen took ownership of the building through eminent domain late last year after the relationship between the U.S. government and previous building owner deteriorated. The federal government had been leasing the space since selling the building in 2008 but decided to let its lease expire.

U.S. District Judge Charles Kornmann suggested the city use eminent domain, which allows government entities to take possession of property if doing so is in the public good.

Aberdeen Mayor Mike Levsen says losing federal court proceedings would hurt the city and region.

City officials decided to begin designing the sprinkler system ahead of official requirements.
