DOD doesn't seek extension to file dismissal motion

Posted: Updated:

Guam - It appears the Department of Defense doesn't need additional time to file a motion to dismiss a civil lawsuit filed in the Hawaii District Court by We Are Guahan, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Guam Historic Preservation Trust.  Judge Leslie Kobayashi had given the DOD until last Friday to submit a brief for an extension, but one was never filed. 

The judge ordered the DOD to submit its motion to dismiss by the end of the month after denying their motion for voluntary remand and stay. The DOD attempted to stall the case to allow for additional review of sites for a live fire training range that has been planned for the Route 15 Pagat area. 

The motion was denied because the DOD was only willing to agree to limited public participation in the reconsideration process. The deadline to file is July 29.
