Superior Court Judge Stephen Goss has ruled that he will allow a jury trial of the Greenbriar appeal of the Albany Municipal Court's ruling that the old Heritage House Hotel eyesore must be razed, but he says that Greenbriar will not have legal representation.

Greenbriar's attorney Todd Jones is licensed to practice law in North Carolina, but not in Georgia.

Goss says that Greenbriar had adequate time to engage a Georgia licensed attorney, or to have its company president state Greenbriar's case, but did not do so.

Greenbriar Holdings requested a jury trial, and Goss said he would try to see if one can be seated to hear the evidence immediately.

Albany Attorney Alex Kaplan used to represent Greenbriar, but removed himself from the case.
