Focusing on many of the judiciary, it attempts to be inclusive and representative of as many ‘firsts’ as may be supported by the facts. The construction of the timeline is an evolving project, which, over time, will include additional significant people and events that tell the story of an ever changing Broward County Courthouse whose Main Courthouse and branches now serve a county of nearly two million people.
