The Robert F. Stephens Circuit Courthouse is still at least ten days away from reopening.

The Kentucky Administration of Courts says they're hoping to reopen the entire fourth floor, and portions of the first, second and third floors on November 4th.

They say they expect to open the remainder of the courthouse in another four to six weeks.

Circuit court hearings in the meantime will continue to be held next door at the District Courthouse.

The Lexington Fire Department says a waterline in a bathroom on the fourth floor broke late Sunday night gushing out gallons of water.

They say there was about three inches of standing water on the fourth.

Court officials say they're still sifting through records to see what is salvageable and what needs to be replaced.

No word yet on how costly the damage was.
