Objections due by 24th for Decision 2010 suit

Guam - The election lawsuit filed in the wake of the 2010 gubernatorial election continues to move through the Superior Court of Guam. The democrats, former governor Carl Gutierrez and Frank Aguon, Jr., filed the lawsuit alleging the election was rife with discrepancies and as a result the results should be declared null and void.

The case this past December was assigned to Superior Court Judge Arthur Barcinas. A status hearing was held this morning. Judge Barcinas disclosed that Governor Eddie Calvo is a member of the Juvenile Justice Board. He instructed the parties that should they have an objection to him hearing the case that they file it with the court by January 24.

Attorney Mike Phillips represents the Calvo/Tenorio team and once again reiterates why the case should be thrown out. "From the beginning we contend the complaint was not filed properly and we believe the case should be dismissed but either way, whether it's dismissed initially or subsequent to a hearing we are very confident the facts demonstrate that there is nothing inappropriate that would result in overturning the election in 2010," he said.

Last January, just before Calvo and Tenorio were inaugurated the Supreme Court of Guam, denied the Gutierrez-Aguon team's petition to have the certification of the 2010 general election results declared null and void.
