Federal judges in Wyoming are joining the Teton County commission to try to prevent the U.S. General Services Administration from selling the federal courthouse building in Jackson. The feds closed the Clifford P. Hansen U.S. Courthouse last month as part of a national cost-cutting effort. Officials from the GSA recently told the county that the agency intends to sell the courthouse building, which stands in the middle of the community’s civic complex. The county provided the land for the courthouse in the mid-1980s. Chief U.S. District Judge Nancy Freudenthal says she and other federal judges in the state want that courthouse to remain open to continue handling criminal cases that originate in nearby Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks.
