      Windows on the new Montgomery County Courthouse in downtown Rockville were emitting so much glare that they were blinding pedestrians and drivers and killing plants.

      A tarp was put over the building to cover the windows. By September, workers will install a solar screen to the unit at a cost of $200,000.

      The new courthouse is not open yet.

      The windows in question are ones to judge's chambers. Despite the cover, they will still be able to see out their windows.
