King's litigation moving through judicial system

Guam - Remember when more than 30 public schools had to be shutdown because lunch couldn't be served.  Well, litigation surrounding the food services contract for the Department of Education continues to move through the island's judicial system. The holdup at this point, according to King's Restaurant attorney David Ledger, is the lack of a signature from Attorney General Alicia Limtiaco and Governor Felix Camacho.

King's last year was selected as the winning bidder, but it was protested by Sodexo. Sodexo however lost their appeal. The AG's Office in turn recommended the entire contract should be rebid, King's however argued the AG doesn't have the discretion to rebid a contract.

"We asked for a decision as quickly as possible because between the end of this school year and the beginning of the 2010 school year in August, there are a number of things that have to be done in the kitchens in the schools around the island.  And if there's a question as to whether the AG is going to sign the contract then there's some reluctance on behalf of King's of making the investment ion the equipment that's needed."

The judge has taken the matter under advisement.
