Guam - Federal receiver Gershman, Brickner & Bratton isn't backing down on its concerns with the Guam Environmental Protection Agency's plans to issue a draft permit for a private landfill at Guatali. Guam Resource Recovery Partners has filed a motion to intervene in the Ordot consent decree case accusing the receiver of abusing its powers.

Receiver representative David Manning tells KUAM News, "The receiver has a duty to keep the court fully informed on matters that affect the consent decree. Our report and the court's order simply seeks information concerning the permitting process. We believe this to be both reasonable and necessary."

GRRP took issue with the additional scrutiny placed on their landfill permit application that was to undergo a public comment period last month. They've not only asked to intervene in the Ordot consent decree case, but they are also seeking District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood's removal from the matter for an alleged familial tie with Guatali.
