Cuyahoga County Court Will Hear Only 'Critical' Cases During RNC

[image-1]Citing "logistical challenges," the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas announced today that only "critical matters" will be dealt with during the Republican National Convention. The Justice Center will remain open, but it won't be the bustling center of joy that it tends to be.

The RNC takes place July 18-21. 

The announcement mentions the trouble that jurors and members of the public will have that week — getting around town is going to be a nightmare — but doesn't really elaborate on what "critical" means. (Our guess*? The week before the RNC ain't a bad time to sleep on that nasty parking meter charge.)
