Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Police Department won't have to worry about paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in towing and storage services for hundreds of impounded vehicles the department kept for years. Big Ben and Company, through Anthony Lujan, filed suit against police department for not paying for the services that were rendered. 

GPD, however, argued that Big Ben failed to comply with the statute of limitations and failed to timely file a government claim. In a decision handed down by Chief Justice Philip Carbullido, the Supreme Court granted the writ GPS requested, finding that Big Ben's claim was barred by sovereign immunity.
