Guam - The attorney in the tax refund class action lawsuit has filed a writ of execution asking the District Court to enforce a $1.7 million judgment against the Government of Guam.  A permanent injunction and final judgment were issued in January of last year and in December the court granted the plaintiffs' motion awarding attorneys fees. 

Attorney Ignacio Aguigui filed the writ request to obtain the full judgment amount. Jeffrey and Rea Paeste and Sharon Zapanta filed the lawsuit against the government for the timely and fair payment of tax refunds on Guam.  As a result the District Court imposed a permanent injunction and ordered the government to pay tax refunds within six months from the time they are filed.
