    I’ve had to deal with metal detectors at the courthouse on two occasions (this was the Federal courthouse in Seattle). I can verify that, depending on the time of day, you might have to wait in a long line with 50 or 100 or more people that stretches out the door and down the block.

    One time was when I got called for jury duty (I appeared both days, but didn’t get called to a case and was dismissed –an interesting experience). The other time was when I got hired to be a census worker and attended a week of training classes in the basement of the courthouse. I’m a cigarette smoker and there’s no smoking in the courthouse, so a 15-minute break meant a quick cigarette and then waiting in line to get back in.
