Federal managers looking into complaints

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The federal management team is looking to address two complaints that were sent to District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall.  Two clients of the Guam Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse wrote letters to the court alleging that Attorney James Casey cursed at them and made disparaging remarks to them.

The clients asked for the team's removal.  Dr. James Kiffer confirmed that the team received the complaints, but would only say that the team is working to address them.  

In the meantime, the team's plan of action submitted to the court earlier this month won't be unveiled until September 9 when the court holds another status hearing.  The judge met with the team this week and indicated that she wants to fine tune the plan over the next few months. 

She also tasked the two with identifying funding to implement the plan, which is estimated to cost between $20-$25 million.  Dr. Kiffer says he will meet with substance abuse and mental health services administration officials next week for technical assistance and possible funding availability.
