On March 14, 2023, the Your Courts Up Close program at the St. Lucie County Courthouse held it’s final session of the year. Participants were hosted in a courtroom and were able to sit in certain seats throughout that they may not previously have had the opportunity – the clerks station, witness stand, attorney tables, jury box, and even the judge’s seat. The session later moved to another courtroom for a panel discussion, making a quick stop by a holding cell on the way. Circuit Judge Elizabeth Metzger, County Judge Daryl Isenhower and County Judge Kathryn Nelson engaged the crowd as they answered questions from participants on various topics. At the conclusion of the evening, participants who had attended at least three evenings of Your Courts Up Close received certificates and joined together for a group photo.
