HOUSING AUTHORITY OF THE CITY OF ATLANTA v. HUDSON.
63467.
POPE, Judge.
Tenant holding over. Fulton State Court. Before Judge Etheridge.
In response to a question certified by this court to our Supreme Court, that court held: "[W]here the trial court has jurisdiction over the person in a dispossessory proceeding by nail and mail service, and the defendant answers (thus obviating any issue as to notice), the trial court also has jurisdiction over the person to enter a money judgment." Housing Authority v. Hudson, 250 Ga. 109, 111 (296 SE2d 558) (1982). This holding is applicable to the circumstances in the case at bar. Thus, the trial court erred in dismissing the Housing Authority's claim for a money judgment. See Housing Authority v. Sterlin, 250 Ga. 95 (296 SE2d 564) (1982). To the extent Local Rule 38(e) of the State Court of Fulton County is in conflict herewith, said rule must yield. See Auerback v. Maslia, 142 Ga. App. 184, 187-8 (235 SE2d 594) (1977); Fulton County v. Corp. &c. of Latter Day Saints, 133 Ga. App. 847 (2) (212 SE2d 451) (1975).
Mary S. Birkett, for appellee.
Alfred J. Turk III, for appellant.
DECIDED JANUARY 27, 1983.
