Davis' lawsuit could end in settlement

Guam - Arnold "Dave" Davis' lawsuit against the Guam Election Commission is scheduled to go to trial in April of 2013 but there have been discussions about a possible settlement.  According to a scheduling order filed with the District Court of Guam, the parties have initiated discussions regarding the possibilities of a settlement, but attorneys note that such an action would require the modification of an existing registration system and election and would require the Legislature's approval to amend the existing status plebiscite as currently structured. 

The parties also noted that a settlement would also likely involve an amended means to ascertain the political wishes of subsets of the population of Guam.  The Government of Guam has already filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit that alleges various civil rights violations because Davis was not able to register to vote in the upcoming plebiscite because he is not a native inhabitant of Guam.
