Bucks Writs - Fall 2021 - 4

President's Message
Greetings fellow members
of the Bucks County
Bar Association.
Sean Gresh
Bucks County Bar
Association President
I was recently offered the
opportunity to join President
Judge Bateman in touring and
reviewing the progress being
made on the construction in
the Justice Center . As many
will recall, when the building
was first constructed, only one
courtroom (560) was built out
on the 5th floor of the building .
Since the Justice Center
opened, the size of our bench has increased by 2 judges,
and our courts are now busier than ever working through
the issues that were caused by the global pandemic of
2020 . The County and the Courts, realizing the need for
additional space, have begun construction on additional
space on the 5th floor to ensure that the building grows
with the needs of the legal community .
I am happy to report that this construction will add four (4)
new court rooms and three (3) new conference rooms to
the 14 courtrooms we currently have . Among these new
rooms will be a new ceremonial court room, a multi-party
jury court room, a non-jury courtroom, and another jury
courtroom . The ceremonial courtroom is to be located
immediately above courtroom 410, using a similar, but
larger, footprint . This extended footprint stretches the new
courtroom almost the entire width of the building, adding
several rows of seating to the gallery .
Next to this ceremonial courtroom will be the multi-party
jury room . This room will be fitted out with several (6-7)
large counsel tables, and a jury box . This room is intended
to accommodate multiple party litigation like jury trials for
medical malpractice cases, or multiple defendant criminal
trials . Located above courtroom 420, this room will be
positioned such that when entering from the hallway, you
will be on the side of the room (not at the rear), and the
bench will be to your left with the jury box located on the
opposite side from the hallway .
There will be a non-jury courtroom added which will
be located above, and appear substantially similar to,

courtroom 440 . Finally, an additional jury trial court room is
being added on the far side of courtroom 560, and directly
above courtroom 460 . This jury room is being referred to
as courtroom 570 in order to maintain the nomenclature
currently in the building .
It may be difficult to notice unless you are attending an
arbitration, but there are currently no dedicated arbitration
rooms in the Justice Center . This is about to change . A
group of three (3) arbitration and conference rooms is
being added in the space located directly above courtroom
430 . These will consist of one (1) large room, and two (2)
that are slightly smaller . When not in use for arbitrations,
these rooms may be used as conference rooms .
