Guam - The Government of Guam has been given a temporary reprieve from coming up with $3 million to pay to the District Court for the amended permanent injunction. District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall issued an order temporarily relieving the government from making payments until she issues an order on the motion to modify the court ordered payment schedule.
The government has asked that the court delay the schedule a third time and modify it as the federal management team currently has access to more than $7 million that is sitting in a bank account and the government doesn't have the cash necessary to comply with the required monthly payments.
The plaintiffs have indicated that they do not object to the delay of the $3.2 million that was supposed to be paid on August 1.
