Guam - It looks like the decade-old case involving an illegal dumpsite in Yigo will head to trial.

According to Guam Environmental Protection Agency administrator Eric Palacios both Guam EPA and respondents Joseph Taitano and wife Rosalind Castro appeared for today's settlement conference, but with no success moving forward as the couple refused to engage in settlement discussions without their attorney, Curtis Van de Veld.

As of this afternoon however, Van de Veld tells KUAM he has yet to decide whether he will represent the couple in the case.

Palacios says this means the case will head back to Judge Arthur Barcinas' courtroom for trial. A date has yet to be set.
