Management team bills more than $74,000

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall has approved more than $74,000 in labor fees and more than $15,000 in expenses for the federal management team's work performed in April.  The court noted that the team of Dr. James Kiffer and Attorney James Casey worked more than 200 hours, but only billed the government for 173 hours of work.

Both were paid more than $34,000 for the month of April, spent more than $4,000 for furniture, and another $11,000 on supplies and for their office and Guma Ifil Uno Residential Group Home. The team is now working on fine tuning a plan of action they submitted to the court to get the government in compliance with an amended permanent injunction.

Dr. Kiffer is meeting with officials this week to identify any funding availability to help the government with its compliance efforts.
