Guam - The Guam Police Department has filed a motion to dismiss a civil suit filed by Gillian Mary Hardman. The woman alleges that she was verbally and physically assaulted by police officers when they responded to a harassment complaint in May 2008.
Assistant Attorney General Rob Weinberg contends the claims against the Guam Police Department and officers in their official capacities fail to state a claim for damages. Hardman is suing for $300,000 in damages from the Government of Guam, as well as full and complete compensatory damages to be proven at trial, as well as the cost of the lawsuit and attorneys' fees and legal expenses.
