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.
About the area
I-81 runs through Christiansburg on its way from the Canadian border near Watertown NY. The highway runs out of steam nearby in Tennessee. Much of the county is in the hills, but the New River, which is actually quite old, runs through it as well. Roanoke is not too far away.
Hours of Operation 8:30 to 4:30 office hours; Christiansburg sessions daily or even twice daily; Blacksburg on Wednesday and Thursday mornings
Chief Judge is Gino Williams, with four others.
Joey Showalter swings for the fences.
Type Of Cases Misdemeanors, the beginnings of felonies, and - this time it is not funny - crazy college kids. And of course, speeding tickets on I-81.
