- Built in 1998, this courthouse was designed by the same architect who did the John Hancock Tower in Boston (1976), the Johnson & Johnson World Headquarters in Brunswick, New Jersey (1983), and the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles (1990).
- It is named for a congressman who led the special panel that investigated the murder of six Jesuit priests and two women in El Salvador in 1989. A bridge next to the courthouse is named for the congressman’s wife.
- The building’s air conditioning system freezes water at night, when electricity is cheap, to cool the building during the day. The method saves over $1 million a year.
- The courthouse is a stone’s throw from the site of a famous protest carried out by the Sons of Liberty.
