Guam - The Calvo Administration is still reviewing a lawsuit filed by Guam Resource Recovery Partners, which seeks $20 million in damages for alleged breach of contract. GRRP is suing the Government of Guam and the Guam Economic Development Authority for failing to negotiate a new waste-to-energy contract.
The company claims it has lost out on millions of dollars.
Governor's chief of staff Frank Arriola says the Administration only learned of the lawsuit through KUAM's newscast last night, noting, "We will definitely have our legal team take a look at it and see what the merits of that suit may or may not be and we will address it once we've reached that point."
GovGuam has yet to respond to the lawsuit. GRRP meanwhile has asked the court for at least $20 million in damages and a trial.
