Judge Lynn N. Silvertooth Judicial Center

The Sarasota County Judicial Center was built in 1998. The modern building is 11 stories high and houses 16 courtrooms.

In 2006, the Sarasota County Judicial Center was renamed the Judge Lynn N. Silvertooth Judicial Center in his honor. As then-Chief Judge Robert Bennett remarked, "For generations of lawyers, he epitomized what a judge and court system ought to be about. He stands as a mold not only for me but for other judges, and hopefully judges to come." He truly led a hero's life.
