Parties await approval of scheduling in gaming case

Guam - The parties in the attorney general's lawsuit against the Department of Revenue & Taxation are waiting for Judge Vern Perez to issue a scheduling order for the case. The AG filed suit believing the gaming regulations are unenforceable and Liberty, Uncle Sam and Symbolix machines are illegal. 

Rev & Tax believes the machines can be licensed. Today the parties appeared in the Superior Court of Guam to submit their proposed scheduling orders. The judge indicated that he is not ready to hear any of the motions filed in the case including the governor's motion to dismiss the case. Governor's legal counsel Sandra Miller maintains the court lacks jurisdiction to hear the matter because the AG's Office has failed to exhaust its administrative remedies. 

Miller also alleged ethical violations against the AG's Office for filing suit against the agency it once represented in a similar matter.
