Guam - Law Week 2014 celebrations started early as members of the 32nd Guam Legislature visited the District Court of Guam o
n Monday
. 
In addition to meeting the court's management team, senators were able to discuss with judges a wide range of policies and issues, take a tour of the facilities, and review case statistics. 

Participating senators included Vice Speaker BJ Cruz, Aline Yamashita, Tom Ada, Frank Aguon, Brant McCreadie, and Tommy Morrison. Also participating in today's visit was attorney Rodney Jacob who serves as the court's lawyer representative to the Ninth Circuit. 

It's the first but hopefully not the last of these types of visits as Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood adds, "It was great to be able to discuss the work of the court with the senators, as well as issues of common concern for the island that we all serve. I don't think we've ever done anything like this before, but I hope we can do it again in the future."
