DALLAS (AP) - An “all clear” has been declared after a suspicious package prompted police to evacuate the building that houses the Dallas municipal courts. Police reported shortly thereafter Thursday afternoon that the package had been inspected and found to be safe. A hazmat team had been dispatched to the scene to examine the parcel, and police closed the downtown intersection around the the Dallas' old city hall that houses the courts. Those streets have since been reopened. The courts in the building handle municipal violations and low-level misdemeanor cases and offenses that only result in a fine.
