To advance EITC or dismiss EITC?

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood wants to move the Earned Income Tax Credit case along or dismiss it.  In an order issued today the judge ordered attorneys for Janice Cruz and Mary Jane Simpao to provide the court with a status report of how they want to proceed with the case by June 1. 

Two months ago the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the District Court's approval of the class action EITC settlement and the award of attorneys' fees.  Cruz and Simpao didn't agree with the settlement and had appealed, but with the appellate court's affirmation the case has remained stagnant.
