This morning, someone phoned in a bomb threat to Orange County Superior Court, otherwise known as the Central Justice Center in downtown Santa Ana.

However, a sweep of the facility at 700 W. Civic Center Drive did not uncover a threat, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

The building is open and normal operations have resumed, the agency adds.

Sounds like someone was trying to get out of jury duty.
