JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The new Duval County Courthouse is finally opening its doors to the public this morning.

The first hearing inside the new building is scheduled to begin at 8:00 a.m. 

In order to make the first day inside the courthouse flow smoothly, the court administrator's office is hoping to provide maps to first-time visitors.

According to Jim Fuller, the Clerk of Court for Duval County, attorneys and others took tours of the building ahead of its opening.  However, some of Fuller's staff will be waiting in the lobby to help guide members of the public where they need to go. 

"Just come on down, we will help you out, show you where to go," explained Fuller.  "We'll have people that will direct you and try to help you find your way."

Fuller said he expects things to go well on the first day.  Most people will only need to go to the first floor to handle business in the Clerk's office.
