Posted: Updated:

Guam - With the sudden resignation of Dr. David Shimizu from the Department of Mental Health, the Government of Guam has until next week to submit a list of proposed receivers.  In an order issued today, Judge Consuelo Marshall wrote that the government's silence and failure to submit names is construed by the court to mean that they have no proposed receivers. 

Judge Marshall put Mental Health on notice that any names for consideration must be submitted by January 22. The plaintiffs recommended doctors Anthony Menditto and Felix Vincenz, physicians with Silverlake Behavioral Consultants that conducted multi-disciplinary treatment evaluations on some 200 Mental Health and DISID consumers on Guam several years ago.
