ALBANY, GA - (WALB) -

A bankruptcy court authorizes a controversial Albany Christian Care home to be sold at auction in July.

The attorney for the Lamad Ministries Season Christian Care Center says Wednesday's ruling in federal court is good news for the people who live there, and invested in the property.

The center is being liquidated, along with a radio station, and the old Terrell County hospital building.

The sale should pay off the corporation's two and a half million dollar debt, said Attorney Walter Kelley.

 "Get some money in the pockets of the people who live there so that whoever buys it. If it's an apartment complex or whatever, then they will have the money they need to live out their lives in peace."

The bankruptcy court will make the final decision whether the auction price is enough to satisfy the sale. Several lawsuits against the center are now on hold.
