Guam - Maeda Pacific and the Government of Guam are back in court appearing before Superior Court Judge Steven Unpingco. In September the island's public sector had rejected a possible settlement that would have finally put an end to a $10 million lawsuit filed by Maeda Pacific Corporation against GovGuam and the Guam Housing Corporation.
They allege that the agreement, which would have included both defendants, poses a sole-source procurement conflict because it would award the second phase of the Lada Estates contract to Maeda. Maeda Corporation is suing the government over construction costs related to Lada Estates in Dededo. Now it looks like Guam Housing Corporation will go it alone.
Judge Unpingco is holding a hearing today to review the merits of a motion to vacate the trial date, and a motion for partial summary judgment.
