Guam - Discovery in Dave Davis' lawsuit over the plebiscite has been stopped until the court makes a decision on whether to accept or reject a recommendation to dismiss the case. District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood issued the stay after the parties agreed to suspend discovery in the case. Davis alleges the plebiscite is racially discriminative and a violation of federal law. 

On November 15 the judge will hear arguments opposing the magistrate judge's recommendation to dismiss the case. Trial for the case has been set for September 17 of next year. 

Meanwhile, Davis and his attorney, J. Christian Adams, will be the guest speakers at the Rotary Club of Guam sunrise on Tuesday discussing land discrimination issues. Davis files a complaint with the U.S. Department of Justice claiming the Chamorro Land Trust Commission is discriminatory because he is not eligible to be a land trust recipient.
