At first, Americans were not sure how important the Supreme Court would be. Not very, some thought. The court did not even have its own building, but moved from place to place. For a while, it operated out of the U.S. Capitol building in a meeting room lawmakers were not using.

Are there any meeting rooms out of the U.S. Capitol buiding that lawmakers can use?

    "Out of" in this context means "from a place in that building" - specifically the meeting room that was mentioned.

    The decisions it made came out of that room.
