Posted: Updated:

Guam - Thursday saw new developments in the election challenge case, as Calvo-Tenorio attorney Mike Phillips has filed a motion to remand the election challenge back to the Superior Court of Guam. The Guam Election Commission earlier this week filed a notice of removal, according to GEC legal counsel Cesar Cabot, automatically moving the election lawsuit filed in the Superior Court by the Gutierrez-Aguon team to the District Court. 

Phillips in court documents filed today said the GEC's action to move the case to federal court was defective because it failed to, among other reasons, get unanimous consent from all the defendants in the litigation specifically his clients to have the case removed from the local court.
