Controversy surrounds Judge Shedd's new chambers

According to the AP:

Taxpayers will foot a $2.5 million bill to lease office space in Irmo for a federal appeals court judge because officials say there is no space available in the recently constructed $40 million federal courthouse in Columbia.

The 4,224-square-foot unmarked building is being built solely for Judge Dennis Shedd, who was appointed three years ago to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Gary Mote, a spokesman for the U.S. General Services Administration office in Atlanta told The Greenville News for a story Sunday.
