State Supreme Court Leak

October 13th, 2008 by flanews

The State Supreme Court is working to fix a water leak that has already destroyed more than 11,000 law books. A fence is being built around the building and dehumidifiers were placed in the basement. Several cracks in the basements walls are causing the leaks. The books destroyed by the water were worth more than 37,000 dollars. State Supreme Court Spokesman Craig Waters said some of them were more than 100 years old.

The books definitely had historical value and many of them are books that were done back in the day when they had leather binding or were very nicely done books and they unfortunately became full of mold and so you would open them up and they would be blue, Waters said.

Luckily the state was able to back up all the books on electronic media before they became unusable.
