Guam - The federal management team of Dr. James Kiffer and James Casey has one month to submit their plan of action to the District Court. The team sought additional time to submit the plan as they are seeking assistance from architects to provide estimates on how much it will cost to construct the center at the old Goodwill building in Upper Tumon.
The center is expected to be a sort of one-stop shop for individuals with disabilities to receive care and treatment. In an order issued today, District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall continued the date for the plan of action that will include a review of the current conditions at the Department of Mental Health and the Division of Integrated Services for Individuals with Disabilities and objectives and goals to get the Government of Guam into compliance with an amended permanent injunction.
The plan of action is due to the court by June 4.
