Guam - District Court of Guam Judge Consuelo Marshall denied the request for receivership over the Department of Mental Health, but she did appoint a management team (which is similar to a receiver).  The team consists of court monitors Dr. James Kiffer and James Casey.

The two will take over managing the agency.  Judge Marshall also noted the need for the two to hire staff.  She is meeting with Dr. Kiffer and Casey today to discuss the scope of their responsibilities.
