ABSTRACT
The article presents a report from Government Accountability Office (GAO) in the U.S. on federal courthouse construction. It mentions that GAO examines whether federal courthouses contained extra spaces and any costs related to it, the actual size compared to congressionally authorized size and whether the level of the courtroom sharing supported by the judiciary's data can change the amount of spaces needed. GAO further made an analysis on courthouse planning and use data.
