Given a place and the kind of minisprite it is, you know exactly where it has to go. With that in mind, I would rather create separate PW and AJ sprites, or not have this at all, than have eight different new positions for courtrooms. The solution looks ugly.
As for how I'd do it better, I'm not sure, and again, this isn't a high priority for me.
