JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The city is moving back into the old courthouse.
City officials are planning to move their court operations from the new $350 million courthouse back to the old building.
That's because the new building failed yet another test of its fire control systems. Tuesday will be one week since the building was supposed to open.
For many locals, a delay in the system isn't just painful, it's breaking their hearts as they wait for justice.
Taurice Brown is the man accused of killing a wife and mother of 3 in 2010. He was supposed to go to trial this week. The crisis at the courthouse put that on hold. From the beginning, Analiza Gobaton's husband has only wanted justice for her death.
"People that run around like this need to be brought to justice," said John Gobaton in 2010.
The prosecutor in the case says there are many more victims.
"This is impacting all our cases....We were going to have grand jury on Thursday so we need to check where we are going to go," said prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda.
So now, city leaders are trying to figure out how to get court in Duval County moving again. The city says the best option is moving back to the old building. While it's not what everyone wants, in a rare occurrence, prosecutors and the public defender are on the same side.
"We're talking about victims and witnesses who don't know where to go," said De La Rionda. "Justice delayed is justice denied. Our clients and victims are just having justice denied," said Public Defender Matt Shirk.
Justice denied is not something this father and husband ever envisioned. "If there are people that are willing to shoot and not care about anyone around them, they need to be put away," said Gobaton in 2010.
Just to give you an idea of how far back this is pushing cases, the Gobaton trial isn't scheduled for another month and a half.
There are still a few big questions that no one has answers too.
First, they are trying to find out who ok'd moving out the old building in the first place. Second, how long will they now be in the old courthouse before the new courthouse is ready.
Right now there is no estimate on how much all of this is going to cost or who exactly is going to pay for it.
