Guam - While initially filing a notice of removal to have an election challenge filed in the Superior Court heard in the federal court, the Guam Election Commission has now joined in a motion to have the case moved back to the Superior Court. GEC legal counsel Attorney Cesar Cabot noted that prior to filing the notice of removal last week, the GEC tried to reach the attorney for Governor-elect Eddie Calvo and Lieutenant Governor-elect Ray Tenorio.

Because the two do not consent to the removal, the case cannot be heard in the District Court prompting the GEC to join in Calvo and Tenorio's motion to remand. Cabot noted however that the Commission still believes that all of the claims contesting the certified election results should be resolved expeditiously and efficiently in a single forum.

The GEC filed a notice to dismiss the election challenge and responses are due by December 28 with the GEC to respond by January 4.
