San Diego's Hall of Justice

My wife Michele took this photograph during our vacation in San Diego a couple of weeks ago. The building may only be about ten years old, but it is not without historic interest. According to the San Diego County Superior Court website,
The stained glass windows overlooking the central atrium in the Hall of Justice carry a history that curves back upon itself, much like the stylized foliage that graces so much Victorian art.

The windows were first installed in a San Diego courthouse in 1889. The 1889 courthouse was torn down to make way for a new courthouse in 1959. I am guessing that the website is referring to this monstrosity:

my husband and i just made a will. we are both executors and power of attorney to each other. the way the will goes is. if anything happens to iether one of us, his sister gets one share per stirpes. and my niece and nephew get one share. his sister has two children. we wanted it to be in equal shares between the children and the niece and nephew, if anything happens to his sister. should we have stated that when we made the will. and how would we calculate that.
