Guam - Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Barrett Anderson will make a decision on whether Younex will be allowed to intervene in a Tamuning resident's case against the Guam Land Use Commission by next Monday. The court has already determined that the government failed to provide proper notices to residents living near the new development in Tamuning.
The judge declared the zone variance permit granted to Younex null and void.
Mary Ann Sablan is opposed to the intervention, saying Younex waited too long to get involved in the case. But attorneys for the company presented oral arguments today, saying they should be allowed because they believe the notice was discretionary and not required by law. The judge indicated she will make a ruling by the end of this week or next Monday.
In the meantime the government has until April 14 to file an appeal of the judge's previous ruling with the Guam Supreme Court.
