Jerome Grand Hotel To Reopen Following Judge's Injunction
A Yavapai County Superior Court judge has allowed the Jerome Grand Hotel to reopen following what hotel co-owner Robert Altherr called an "illegal shutdown."
As was previously reported, the historic hotel's certificate of occupancy was revoked by town officials on December 8 due to "unsafe" conditions. The move caused the hotel to halt its operations for more than a month. The decision also prompted hotel co-owner Altherr to tell New Times that "Gestapo tactics" were being used against him.
Though Altherr is jazzed that the hotel's certificate of occupancy has been reinstated (which occurred during a preliminary injunction hearing on January 14), he and his attorney will still pursue an $8-million-plus lawsuit that they filed with Yavapai County Superior Court on December 14.
"The five percent of people that run this town are wackos," says Altherr, "but the other ninety-five percent are good people."
