Guam - Another class action lawsuit has been filed against the Government of Guam. The Chief of Admissions at the Guam Memorial Hospital Authority, Lourdes B.Q. Tenorio is taking the agency to court for failing to remit retirement contributions to the Government of Guam Retirement Fund.

According to court documents, Tenorio alleges GMH owes an estimated $7 million combined for the Defined Benefits Plan and the Defined Contribution Retirement System Plan. The lawsuit specifically sites the following years as retirement contributions failing to be paid: 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2010, and 2011.  Tenorio has been employed at GMHA since 1987.

This is the second class action lawsuit filed against the government by Attorney Ignacio Aguigui on behalf of his clients. Attorney Aguigui also filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of   Rea and Jeffrey Paeste and Sharon Zapanta. The three are hoping to force the government of Guam to pay the estimated $269 million owed in tax refunds to the people of Guam.
