Guam - A pre-trial conference will be held Thursday in Jeffrey and Rea Paeste and Sharon Zapanta's lawsuit against the Government of Guam. The suit seeks the payment of tax refunds.
The plaintiffs have indicated a willingness to settle the matter, but the government has not determined whether such talks would be appropriate. There has not been a determination of whether the trial will be held in September as proposed by the plaintiffs or whether it will begin next March, when the government has requested.
