A ribbon cutting was held on June 11th at the St. Lucie County courthouse to open the new Nursing Room. Located on the third floor of the Courthouse, the room is the result of nearly eight months of collaboration between the Florida Association for Women Lawyers (FAWL), the St. Lucie County Chapter of FAWL, the Court and staff, the St. Lucie County Clerk of Court and Comptroller and staff, St. Lucie Sheriff’s office, St. Lucie County and a grant funded by Children's Services Council of St. Lucie County. Judge Elizabeth Metzger has led the efforts with project planning along with court staff. This is the second nursing room she has overseen from inception to finalization with the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit. Access will be permitted to employees, attorneys, and members of the general public through the use of specially created access cards.
