Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Judiciary of Guam will be bringing legal action against the Department of Administration to get $1.8 million in allotments. The courts have only received $100,000 for the current fiscal year and is actually owed $5.1 million for the first quarter. The $1.8 million figure represents the Judiciary's portion of the total revenues collected by the Government of Guam.

The Judicial Council unanimously voted to authorize administrator of the courts, Perry Taitano, to file a writ of mandamus for the money.  The courts warn that without the money the island's court system faces payless paydays, shortened workdays, or outright furloughs.
