Guam - The Government of Guam has come up with the $2,000,000 that was ordered by District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall.  Federal management team member Dr. James Kiffer confirms that the money was received late Monday afternoon. 

The judge ordered the government to fork out $15,000,000 over the course of the next year for the implementation of a plan of action.  The order is part of the government's amended permanent injunction that seeks to bring the Department of Mental Health and DISID into compliance with providing basic and adequate care for individuals with disabilities.

Another $2,000,000 payment is due on January 3 and officials are not sure where they will get the money to pay for that.
