Guam - The Supreme Court held a disqualification hearing in the case against retired police captain Gene Tennessen and former attorney general Douglas Moylan. Several years ago a Superior Court judge issued a restraining order against Moylan, who was AG at the time.
Moylan has alleged he was never served that restraining order and his lawyer is asking that the judge vacate the entire order back to the time it was issued. Supreme Court justices determined Moylan violated that restraining order and the prosecution of Tennessen had an appearance of impropriety.
Tennessen meanwhile, whose theft and official misconduct charges were vacated, is waiting for the issue to be resolved so he can appear back in the Superior Court to determine if he will receive a new trial.
