Looming deadline for DOD to file dismissal motion

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Department of Defense has until the end of the week to file a motion to dismiss a civil suit filed by We Are Guahan, the Guam Preservation Trust and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Hawaii District Court Judge Leslie Kobayashi ordered the DOD to submit the motion after denying their motion to sty the case for 90 days. 

The DOD wanted time to conduct additional studies on the site of the live fire training ranges they intend to put on Guam for the Marines' relocation.  The plaintiffs had agreed to the delay only on the condition that the public would be able to participate in the process, but the DOD only agreed to limited public comments. 

The DOD must submit its motion to dismiss to the court by Saturday, July 30 (Guam time).
