Guam - The Attorney General's Office opposes dismissal of a lawsuit it filed against its former client, the Department of Revenue & Taxation, the governor and several amusement device companies. In a memorandum filed in the Superior Court, Deputy AG Patrick Mason maintains that the attorney general does not have a conflict and that the Superior Court has jurisdiction to hear the matter. 

The 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 department it once represented in a similar matter.

The AG's Office is suing the department for issuing licenses for machines that it has deemed illegal gambling devices.
