Plaintiffs file proposed perm injunction in tax refund suit

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The plaintiffs in the permanent injunction case are adamant that they want the Government of Guam to pay out tax refunds within six months of their filing. The plaintiffs' proposed permanent injunction was filed in the District Court today.

They were unable to reach an agreement despite three settlement conferences with Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan. The main sticking point is the timeframe for the government to pay the refunds.  The government wanted one year while the plaintiffs wanted six months.

The proposed injunction also seeks to force the government to file reports on a quarterly basis and the suspension and discontinuation of expedited refund payments. If the government fails to comply with the injunction, the plaintiffs want a receiver appointed, government funds sequestered and contempt proceedings initiated.

The government has two weeks to review the proposal and submit objections.
