by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - During his last State of the Judiciary Address as the chief justice of the Supreme Court of Guam, the Honorable Robert Torres talked about technology and making the court more accessible to everyone.

Torres says as a result of the recently-completed Facilities Master Plan, the Judiciary not only needs four additional judges by 2014, but another facility to accommodate population growth from the military buildup.
