Disqualification hearing set in gambling device lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Superior Court Judge Arthur Barcinas will hear arguments on a motion to disqualify the Attorney General's Office from suing Rev & Tax, the governor and owners of Liberty and other gaming machines on Guam. The AG's Office believes the devices are illegal because gaming regulations are unenforceable.

The Governor's Office however argues that the AG has a conflict of interest and violated ethical rules by suing its former client, Rev & Tax, on a similarly related issue.  The AG's Office opposes the motion.  

The court set a hearing for February 17 on the disqualification motion.  The judge meanwhile also granted pacific amusement's motion to intervene. 

The company, along with Darryl Styles, maintains they are losing money because their machines are not licensed.  The court also has a pending motion to dismiss that will be addressed after the disqualification issue.
