Court uses directory to find lawyer for Jathan Tedtaotao

by Krystal Paco

Guam - It appears the court is running out of options in attorneys to appoint to represent Jathan Tedtaotao.

Tedtaotao appeared in court today with co-defendant Antonio Quitugua. The two are accused not only in the Bank of Guam robbery but in a burglary case in which guns and ammo were stolen. Superior Court Judge James Canto noted the defendants keep coming back because the court has exhausted the private attorney panel due to related cases and affiliated co-actors.

The court has resorted to the bar directory to appoint attorneys. Attorney Don Calvo was last appointed to represent Tedtaotao but his motion to be dismissed is pending filing. Shane Black who was appointed to Quitugua was denied his motion to be dismissed from the case.  The two are scheduled to appear back in court tomorrow for a continued arraignment.
