Potential receivers list not turned in

Guam - The Guam Department of Mental Health still has not submitted a list of possible receivers, as per a verbal court order issued by Judge Consuelo Marshall on December 4. The plaintiffs, represented by Attorney Daniel Sommerfleck, submitted their list of candidates on Monday.  But Mental Health Director Dr. David Shimizu says that the name he submitted to the Attorney General's Office wasn't approved and hasn't been forwarded to the court.

"They're saying well if it's just in the realm of possibilities and no there's no definitive thing then its best that we just don't file at this point in time," Shimizu stated.

Mental Health is withholding that name for the time being, pending further communication with the possible candidate.

Shimizu also expects to receive some help.  Dr. Eric Broderick and Dr. John Morrow from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration have proposed sending a team of federal consultants to Guam this month to assist DMHSA with its effort.
