Guam - Local attorney Howard Trapp has filed a motion in the Supreme Court of Guam requesting to be heard on the legislature's request for a declaratory judgment case. As reported the GEC passed Resolution 358 authorizing the court action which seeks relief over the legislature's ability through a duly passed law of Guam to direct the GEC to place a measure on this year's general election ballot. That measure in question is Bill 215 which lapsed into law related to medicinal marijuana. The law was deemed inorganic by the Guam Election Commission.

Attorney Trapp in his motion agrees the law is inorganic and states "The Legislature of Guam cannot pass the buck to the people of Guam".

Opening arguments are set for August 4th.
