UOG professor backs plebiscite

Posted: Updated:

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - University of Guam professor Anne Perez Hattori reiterated her support for the Government of Guam and native inhabitants of the island to have a plebiscite. In an amicus brief to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Hattori's attorney, Julian Aguon, requests the court affirm the District Court of Guam's dismissal of Dave Davis' lawsuit. 

Davis continues to argue that Guam's voting restriction is unconstitutional and violates federal law. He wants the District Court's dismissal reversed and he wants the 9th Circuit to strike down the plebiscite law's voting qualification which currently restricts him from participating because of his race and ancestry.
