Sukola recuses herself from Gutierrez suit

Guam - Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola has recused herself from presiding over a civil suit filed by former governor Carl Gutierrez against local physician Dr. Vince Akimoto and former attorney general Douglas Moylan. Gutierrez filed the litigation, seeking $5,000,000 in damages from each of the defendants.

He alleges the two men acted maliciously when Dr. Akimoto sued Gutierrez and former Guam Memorial Hospital associate administrator Therese Hart over a $150,000 wrongful death settlement back in 2002.  That suit was eventually thrown out before it went to trial.

The court is now working to reassign the case.
