Lujan denounces Hillbroom's lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Local attorney David Lujan has filed a motion to dismiss a case filed against him by his former client, Junior Larry Hillbroom. According to documents filed in the CNMI District Court, Lujan, through his attorney Ramon Quichocho, has asked the court to dismiss the complaint alleging Hillbroom has no standing to sue. 

The local attorney was successful in having a similar suit filed against him thrown out in the state of California.  Lujan argues the case should be dismissed because his former client has no claims because of binding orders from the Superior Court of Guam and the CNMI District Court.

Hillbroom is alleging legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, civil conspiracy, and racketeering.  He believes Lujan received more in attorneys' fees than he should have.  Lujan has asked for the case to be dismissed; or alternatively, transferred to the Guam District Court, where he was successful in having a similar civil suit moved to the Superior Court.
