Younex should be allowed to intervene in land case

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Supreme Court of Guam has reversed the lower court's denial of Younex's motion to intervene in a civil lawsuit. Younex attempted to intervene in Mary Ann Sablan's case against the Guam Land Use Commission. The Superior Court declared a zone variance null and void for the company's high-rise condominium development in Tamuning. 

Younex tried to participate in the case following the court's decision but was denied after their motion was deemed untimely. Supreme Court justices however found that the trial court abused its discretion since the company had a protectable interest and should have been allowed to intervene as a matter of right. 

The high court also denied Younex's petition for writ of prohibition finding it is not an appropriate remedy.
