Guam - Hoping to resolve a lawsuit that was filed against the agency last week, the Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority has turned over documents to Medallion Guam. The company filed a lawsuit against the agency for failing to comply with a Freedom of Information Act request that was made back in December.
GHURA board chair Dave Sablan says the board was not aware of the request until the lawsuit was filed. He says the request was sitting in an inbox and was not acted upon. GHURA has provided most of the documents but is locating older records for one of the requests.
Medallion filed a protest over GHURA's award of more than $4 million in Low-Income Housing Tax Credits to two lower-ranked offerors.
