Judge denies reconsideration for Hillbroom lawyers

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Central District of California Judge Otis Wright II denied a motion for reconsideration filed by the attorneys for DHL heir Junior Larry Hillbroom. A few days ago the judge dismissed Hillbroom's civil suit filed against local attorney David Lujan, as he found the court lacked personal jurisdiction over Lujan.

Hillbroom's attorneys sought clarification and reconsideration of that order, but both requests were denied.  Hillbroom's lawyers had hoped their lawsuit could proceed against Lujan, Keith Waibel and Barry Israel as he contends the three conspired to increase retainer fees to take more than half of his multi-million dollar inheritance. 

Lujan meanwhile still faces civil suits in the state of Hawaii and has his own defamation suit against Hillbroom's attorneys here on Guam.
