Attorney refutes Marianas Variety article

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Calvo and Clark law firm is setting the record straight, issuing a press release in response to a story in today's edition of the Marianas Variety.  In an article written by reporter Therese Hart, she cited "A confidential source told the Variety the 2011 contract with SelectCare never reached the governor's desk for signature because Champ Calvo of Calvo and Clark and SelectCare's legal counsel was negotiating with the Attorney General's Office about a certain provision involving GovGuam's Claims Act.

Attorney Eduardo "Champ" Calvo called that portion of the article "entirely false" and that he has not in any way been involved in the negotiations and has had no communications either oral or written with the AG or anyone else in the AG's Office regarding the government's health insurance contract.

Hart is a former associate administrator of the Guam Memorial Hospital who served during the Carl Gutierrez Administration. Several years ago she pleaded guilty to a charge of improper influence over a notary as a 3rd degree felony.  The charges stem from a wrongful death settlement involving one of her family members during the time she worked at the hospital.
