GovGuam, resident negotiating EITC settlement

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Government of Guam and a resident who opted out of the Earned Income Tax Credit class action settlement are discussing a possible settlement.  Christine Naputi was one of several plaintiffs who originally filed suit against the Government of Guam for failure to pay previously-owed EITC. 

The island's public sector settled the case for $90 million, but Naputi chose not to be part of the settlement, alleging the government owed much more than what she would receive through the class action agreement.  The lawsuit was scheduled to proceed, but KUAM News has confirmed that negotiations for a settlement are underway.

The parties have asked the district court for additional time to strike a deal.
