Guam - For the second time, Robert J. Torres will lead the Guam Judiciary as the chief justice of the Guam Supreme Court. As we reported, Torres was elected on Friday to assume the role as Chief Justice F. Philip Carbullido's three-year term has expired.  This morning Torres took the oath of office during a promulgation hearing in the Supreme Court in front of his colleagues and family.

"I will conscientiously and impartially discharge my duties as chief justice of Guam," he announced.

Torres says he looks forward to moving initiatives designed to enhance the delivery of services that the courts provide while also addressing the needs of the community and finding ways to bolster court funding. 

Torres previously served as chief justice in 2008 to 2011.
