Sewage Leak Closes Genesee County Courtroom

A Genesee County courtroom was shut down on Wednesday when raw sewage leaked from the ceiling.

District Court Judge Herman Marable adjourned for the day when the leak began dropping sewage on the judge’s bench and the floor. Officials say the county’s maintenance staff were working to identify the problem on Wednesday, and the health department took samples to be analyzed. The courtroom remained closed on Thursday.
