Phoenix Municipal Court


This court building in downtown Phoenix bears the name of Valdemar A Cordova who served on the Phoenix City Council from 1955 to 1959 and then went on to be a County Superior court judge. In 1979 he was appointed by President Jimmy Carter to the Federal bench making him the first Arizona Mexican-American to hold such a position and among the first nationwide. This building was completed 1999 and holds 38 courtrooms. Included in this building project was the renovation of another building that I’ll show you tomorrow.

That's a grand and very imposing building! I wouldn't want to be going there if I was in the wrong.

I like those curved glass windows.

It certainly solid enough. The curved glass windows redeem it, give it a little lightness.
