History and Architecture
The U.S. Courthouse, built between 1937 and 1940 as the U.S. Post Office and Court House, was the third federal building constructed in Los Angeles to serve its rapidly growing population in the early twentieth century. It has been the venue for a number of notable court cases, including a breach of contract suit filed by Bette Davis against Warner Brothers. Designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood, the building is a major example of Art Moderne architecture. The U.S. Courthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
