Guam - The Guam Bar Association is hoping Governor Eddie Calvo will act expeditiously with regard to filling the vacancy on the Superior Court bench. Judge Steven Unpingco has officially retired but has been tapped as the senior pro-tem judge as he completes his caseload. 

Guam Bar President Cynthia Ecube told KUAM News, "In a two-week period we received 119 valid responses from our bar members. I would note since my tenure on the bar that is the largest number of results since I've served as an officer."

The Governor's Office confirms it has received the nominations.
