DOWNTOWN SACRAMENTO -- The City of Sacramento is getting a new courthouse, one that Mayor Darrell Steinberg says is much needed.
The $460 million to build it came from the state budget and not from the city. Steinberg said Thursday was a case where persistence paid off.
The new 17-story building would be at The Railyards and could open in 2023.
The current Sacramento Superior Courthouse is more than 50 years old.
