Guam - Police officers who filed a civil suit to be paid overtime will have to wait another week before they find out when the matter will go to trial. More than a dozen police officers filed suit against the force for failure to pay overtime in a timely manner. 

Their attorney, Daniel Somerfleck, has attempted to have the case move forward but the assistant attorney general assigned to the case has been ill.  Judge Arthur Barcinas ordered the ag's office reassign the case if necessary as the rules require civil matters to be resolved within 12 months.  Somerfleck indicated today that he wants to the case to be tried in September. 

Another scheduling conference is scheduled for May 6.
