This is the now infamous court where the Virginia Tech shooter had been ordered to undergo mental health treatment. There was no follow through on the treatment, and the rest is history. Far from clear that the treatment would have made a difference, but it probably would have. Media reports the special justice who ordered treatment as Paul Barnett, but a CNN copy of the order shows Judge Elinor Williams signing at least one page of the order.
There are two divisions of the court, one for Christiansburg and another for Blacksburg. Blacksburg General District Court is at 300 S. Main Street, zip is 24060.
