Guam - It's been more than fourteen months since the federal management team was appointed by the court and despite a plan of action that was approved seven months ago, there's been little to no progress. That's the message attorneys for individuals with disabilities submitted to District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall. 

In a motion for timelines and corrective action, the plaintiffs list a number of timelines the team included in their plan of action that have not been completed. The actions include hiring a security team by October of last year, additional professionals to support community outreach teams, hiring of occupational and behavioral therapists, counselors, and social workers as well as designing the construction of four four-bedroom homes and two cluster complexes.

The attorneys contend the objectives of the plan of action are not being timely completed and the federal management team is providing incomplete or inaccurate reports of progress.
