Guam - A group of police officers who filed suit against the Department of Administration four years ago are still waiting for the government to make good on what is owed to them. As we reported the court found that officers who work 43 hours a week should be compensated three hours of overtime.
The court however did not grant the request to certify a class and only found that the judgment should be awarded to the plaintiffs who filed the lawsuit. Attorney Daniel Somerfleck has filed a motion to reconsider.
In the meantime, the Department of Administration has provided preliminary figures of what is owed to the officers. Those numbers are under review and another hearing is set for February 21.
