TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A grand jury has dropped a citizen's complaint about a $48 million courthouse so opulent that critics are calling it a "Taj Mahal."
State Attorney Willie Meggs said the panel didn't say why it turned aside the complaint about the new home of the 1st District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee.
Meggs, though, said he personally didn't think there was any criminal wrongdoing.
The courthouse has become a political football with politicians blaming each other for approving a building rotunda, home and columns.
It also included private bathrooms with granite countertops for each of the 15 judges was well as big-screen televisions and kitchens.
