Judge allows review of GPD-seized document

Posted: Updated:

Guam - KUAM and the Guam Police Department were back in court today as the Calvo & Clark law firm sought an in camera review of the single document police seized from our offices during a search warrant executed more than two weeks ago.  Much to the dismay of GPD's Legal Counsel James Mitchell, Superior Court Judge Vern Perez granted the request and allowed both sides to partially review the document in chambers. 

Mitchell argued that privacy rights would be violated if the review was allowed, while Attorney Arthur Clark argued that the document police seized was only a copy not the original GPD alleges was stolen from personnel records.

Judge Perez will hold hearings on June 24 and 25th to determine who has rightful possession of the document, as well to hear further arguments on the warrant that police obtained and was signed by Judge Anita Sukola.

KUAM maintains the raid was illegal and violated the federal Privacy Protection Act of 1980.
