This is the 11 story building in the Civic Center Complex in downtown Santa Ana. It contains both Central Justice Center and Central Superior Court. Central Superior Court is the term used for the most serious of Felony cases from throughout Orange County that are handled at this facility. It is a large Full Security Building and with screening all people at the entrances, it is important to allow adequate time so you are not late for court. Remember, everyone has court starting at essentially the same time so the early morning rush can be overwhelming.
