Permanent injunction due Friday for tax refund suit

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The parties in the ongoing tax refund case have until the end of this week to submit a proposed permanent injunction that would spell out timelines for the government to pay out tax refunds every year and penalties if they fail to comply.  Attorneys for the plaintiffs and the government as well as members of the governor's fiscal team participated in several settlement conferences with Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan in hopes to work out a compromise. 

The court extended the deadline to submit the proposed injunction in hopes to parties would be able to work out their differences, which we understand dealt mostly with the time periods for the government to pay out the refunds.  The government wanted one year while the plaintiffs were pushing for six months. 

The deadline to submit the injunction is Friday.  If the parties can't agree, the government will have to submit their objections by then as well.
