The governor will have to start searching for a new legal counsel as Maria Cenzon Duenas was unanimously approved to fill the vacancy on the Superior Court of Guam bench.  Duenas has been practicing law locally for more than a decade and received overwhelming support from the local bar association and others in the community.

"I'm very again humbled about all the support I've received from the legislature, and from my friends and colleague who have according to Senator [Adolpho] Palacios have continued to submit testimony in support of the nomination so that makes me very proud," she said.
