Gutierrez still fighting $300K GMH settlement

Guam - While former governor Carl Gutierrez may have beat another legal challenge this week with the dismissal of charges in the retirement case, the gubernatorial candidate is still fighting a $300,000 settlement payment to be paid to the Guam Memorial Hospital.  A year ago Gutierrez and former hospital administrator Dr. Davina Lujan were found liable for a settlement payment made to Dr. Vivian Batoyan Sagisi, who did not make a government claim.

Gutierrez was ordered to pay the Government of Guam $300,000; Lujan must pay $100,000.

The court found that Gutierrez and Lujan failed to prudently manage public money when they authorized payment.  The defense had filed a motion for reconsideration (which was denied), and has now appealed the case to the Guam Supreme Court.

Briefs are due in August and October.
