GRRP files motion to intervene in Ordot case

Guam - With District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood ordering a complete review of Guam Resource Recovery Partners' draft permit application, the company is now moving to intervene in the ongoing Ordot consent decree case. The motion was filed in the District Court today as GRRP alleges the federal receiver has abused its power by asking the court to prevent any further action on the company's private landfill application.

It contends the court's February order has frozen the permitting process for months or more. GRRP had anticipated the public comment period would begin last month after the Guam Environmental Protection Agency sent them a letter indicating their plans to issue a draft permit. 

The company has asked for Judge Tydingco Gatewood to be recused citing a familial tie to the Guatali property.
