There were no closed-door court proceedings at the courthouse on Broad Street in New London Thursday because there were no doors. There were also no walls, and the ceiling was wide-open sky.
An underground transformer malfunctioned, disrupting the court from business as usual, the Day of New London reports, so court officials set up tables outside the courthouse to conduct business.
But, the court did do three arraignments and pulled out the old-school stenography machine to record the hearings.
It’s not clear when the power will be back on.
