Luis Reyes still awaits court-ordered payment

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Former Department of Education superintendent Luis Reyes was back in court today because hasn't been paid a dime of the funds the court ordered two years ago for the agency to pay him for his wrongful termination.  In court today, Reyes said they are trying to address the readjustment of the retirement annuity owed to him.

He is owed $250,000 plus 6% annual interest, along with the retirement pay. "I'm still getting my retirement annuity," he said, "but what were looking for is the adjustment of the retirement annuity because of the remainder of years that I was supposed to be under contract, that's about a year and half so that's part of our claim."

The Guam Education Policy Board terminated Reyes after the shut down of Southern High School by the Health and Safety Task Force. The next hearing is set for February 17.
