Guam - The ribbon was cut this afternoon officially opening up the DWI Court at the Superior Court in Hagatna. The judicial system has been plagued with a backlog of DWI cases for years, as the cases had to be split among various judges. The Therapeutic Court was put in place to address the increasing number of drunk-driving cases on Guam.

Judge Elizabeth Barrett Anderson, who will preside over the new court, told KUAM News, "The cases will get in front of a judge within 48 hours and the goal of the DWI Court is to take that rush of cases that come in, get them into the process. And my goal with the DWI court is to get them into treatment within 30 to 60 days of their offense."

Her honor adds that she will begin taking on the DWI cases on Monday.
