Guam - Claiming they could have confidential information detrimental to a case filed against them, Access Ypao, Inc. has filed a motion to have the law firm of Lujan, Aguigui & Perez disqualified from representing South Pacific Petroleum Corporation.  SPCC is suing Access Ypao and two of their former employees, Brian Suhr and Michael Hahm, who are accused of using their positions and the company to back their investments with Access.

According to court documents, the Lujan law firm did the legal research for Access' twin tower condominium project.  According to court documents Access Ypao hired the law firm in January 2008, but the firm is now representing SPPC. Access is moving for the Lujan law firm to be disqualified because its former representation of Access Ypao is substantially related to the present litigation.
