Chief judge books hearing for Watts v. Port

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood will hear the Port Authority of Guam's motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Watts Constructors next month.  Watts Constructors filed suit against the agency, challenging more than $1,000,000 in charges imposed by the agency after sending cargo through the Guam Shipyard.

The Port wants the case thrown out, alleging Watts failed to exhaust available administrative remedies such as arbitration. Watts however contends the suit is valid and argues that the port is not entitled to immunity from being sued in federal court.

The court is scheduled to hear the motion to dismiss on Wednesday, July 7.
