Guam - Former DOE superintendent Luis Reyes may have been terminated more than two and a half years ago, but he's still waiting for a $250,000 judgment from the department.  Reyes was back in the Superior Court today. 

This time he was asking the court to make a determination whether he is entitled to the retirement annuity he would have received from the time he was terminated in March 2008 to the time his contract actually expired in September 2009.  Superior Court Judge Vern Perez took the request under advisement.

Meanwhile, DOE reported that they are aware of the $250,000 obligation to Reyes, but the department doesn't have the funds to pay the judgment.
