Guam - Proof that the amended permanent injunction can be resolved, District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall has approved a stipulation that releases the Guma Bethesda Home from the ongoing litigation. The home, which is run by Latte Treatment, provides services to adults and received accreditation from the Joint Commission. 

The parties have agreed that any programs that are JCO accredited would meet the minimum level of care that would satisfy the court order. Attorney Daniel Somerfleck says this is a step in the right direction as the court has recognized that the injunction can end. He told KUAM News, "What I would hope is that the other service providers that are contract providers as well as the government agencies would look at this and say, 'Okay, we can get out of this permanent injunction this is a doable issue.'"
