Guam - District Court Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan wants more information before deciding whether David Lujan's law firm should be disqualified from representing South Pacific Petroleum Corporation. The company is suing Access Ypao and two of their former employees - Brian Suhr and Michael Hahm - accusing them of using their position at SPPC to back their investments with Access Ypao.
The latter, however, argues that Lujan's firm represented them and conducted legal research for their twin tower condominium project and should therefore not be allowed to represent SPPC because of substantial information the firm has that is related to the ongoing lawsuit. More documents must be provided from the Lujan firm in the next 20 days before the judge will make a decision on the disqualification motion and how to proceed with the case.
