Looking for District Court
(Column ~ 09/18/05)
A funny thing happened on my way to see a man sentenced to jail for shooting a pharmacist. While checking into a Chattanooga hotel, it became clear that the front desk clerk didn't know where the U.S. District Court was located. She could point to the Hamilton County Courthouse on a map, but not federal court. She could even point to another intersection in downtown Chattanooga where she paid a traffic ticket, but she was pretty sure city court wasn't federal court, whatever that is...
