Guam - A police officer who filed suit against the Government of Guam for being demoted isn't giving up on his claims that he was wrongly stripped of his badge and gun. Tracey Volta was one of several police officers who were demoted to civilian status for several months for allegedly not meeting the requirements to re-enter the Guam Police Department.
The officers have since had their badges and guns returned. The Government of Guam is moving to have the case thrown out and the matter was supposed to be heard this morning before Judge Michael Bordallo. The judge, however, recused himself from the case because of his familial ties to Police Chief Fred Bordallo.
The case will be reassigned to another judge.
