Guam - District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood is allowing two Department of Corrections inmates to move forward with their lawsuits against the agency. Taisen Jessy and Charles Weatherby both filed motions asking that they be allowed to proceed without having to pay the filing fees.
Jessy alleges his constitutional rights are being violated and claims he hasn't received proper medical attention. Weatherby makes the same claims and alleges DepCor officials prevented him from seeking treatment for gall stones.
The court denied requests for a court-appointed attorney.
