ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Gilbert Udoto has been fighting the city to keep his bar, Big Daddy's, open after frequent police calls there.

He was scheduled to have another hearing in court, but his attorney, Bo Dorough, asked for and received a postponement.

"So I feel that's not fair. And I want to may employees to come back to work, so I am going to pursue any legal remedy to make sure that I get justice," said Udoto.

Udoto will go to Dougherty County Superior Court on April 10th. Dorough asked for the delay so that he could digest documents and evidence in the case before a final ruling on whether Udoto can keep his alcohol license.

Udoto says he's happy Judge Willie Lockette will hear his suit that claims the city did not follow proper legal procedures in taking his license away.
