Grand Courtroom is the first chapter of the sixth act in Gears of War: Judgment. It is also the first chapter happening in present time. After Col. Loomis finishes the trial and everybody gives their last words, Loomis is about to fire but the Locust manage to enter the courtroom, killing all guards and taking Loomis as a Meat Shield but Paduk saves him and he escapes. Kilo is left to fend for themselves.
As the chapter starts, a Reaver will appear at the middle of the courtroom. Find some cover and take it down before dealing with the rest of the Locust. There'll be Cyclops, Ragers and Wretches inside. You should take out the Ragers first before heading towards the Declassified Mission, which will be near a destroyed staircase at the end of the room.
"Col. Loomis's report contradicted eyewitness accounts of Kilo Squad having employed Locust melee weapons."
Activating the mission will require you to only use Butcher Cleavers against the Locust. Considering that there are several Ragers and Wretches, you should be careful and allow your allies to deal with the most dangerous Locust, leaving only the weak ones behind.
After walking past a collapsed pillar, Boomers will appear, giving a nasty twist to the fight. Take them down and finish off the remaining Locust before heading towards the door in front of you to end the chapter.
The COG Tag will be located near a nearby stairway to your left, above the Crimson Omen.
