Congress hasn't given them enough money to stay open

The federal judiciary said Tuesday it will close six courthouses in the South because of inadequate funding from Congress and the prospect of more drastic cuts.

The courthouses to be closed are in Gadsen, Ala.; Pikeville, Ky.; Meridian, Miss.; Wilkesboro, N.C.; Beaufort, S.C.; and Amarillo, Texas, the Judicial Conference said.
