Federal judge holds compliance meeting

Posted: Updated:

Guam - District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall met with court monitors today on the progress of the government in complying with a permanent injunction and various orders she's imposed.  The judge will hear arguments tomorrow on a motion for receivership filed by the plaintiffs in the permanent injunction case against Mental Health and DISID.

The plaintiffs have spent the better part of seven years fighting for the government to establish proper treatment and care for individuals with disabilities. Yet the government contends receivership would be an expensive route and is unnecessary. 

In a supplemental opposition motion filed with the court, attorneys for the government contend that most of the orders issued by the court have been met.

The court is scheduled to hold a motions hearing on Friday morning at 10 in the District Court.
