Guam - The Judiciary of Guam's new Marshal of the Courts has moved up the ranks since he first joined the courts in 1989. Edward S. Toves was selected to fill the vacancy left by Frank Leon Guerrero who is now the U.S. Marshal for Guam and the CNMI. He begins his new role on Tuesday.
Chief Justice F. Philip Carbullido said, "I am confident that Ed will lead our marshals division very capably as he has done so as Deputy Marshal Supervisor."
Toves stated, "I am humbled by the Chief Justice's faith in me to serve as the Marshal of the Courts. I know I am qualified to lead the exemplary force of men and women in the marshals division of the judiciary as we tackle the challenges that face us today, including understaffing, budgetary constraints and ensuring the safety of our judiciary and patrons in this very different society."
