Guam - Supreme Court of Guam Justice F. Philip Carbullido was sworn-in this morning to lead the island's Judiciary as chief. He's already rolling up his sleeves to deal with the cash crisis - this Thursday the Judicial Council will meet to decide whether it can afford to implement the Hay Study.

He said, "We can't wait until it's upon us to decide whether employees are going to be laid of, whether courts are going to close down, there must be proper planning and see how we can avoid it. And so I first need to understand and receive more of the facts of the circumstance that we are in."

Justice Carbullido previously served as chief from 2003-2008.
