Judge rules in favor of Port management

Guam - The Port Authority of Guam's decision to terminate two employees that the Civil Service Commission determined did not meet the qualifications for employment as accountant two's stands. As you may recall, although the CSC determined they didn't meet the qualifications they still ruled in favor of the employees because it found Port management violated the 60-Day Rule. As a result the CSC ordered the two employees be reinstated. 

The Port took the matter to court. Port general manager Joanne Brown reported to the Port board Wednesday that Superior Court Judge James Canto ruled in their favor. "He ordered that the petition for judicial review be granted and that the court vacate the CSC decision with regards to the judgment and adverse action in the cases due to lack of jurisdiction so in that particular case in regards to CSC the decision of port management to have terminated the Port employees stands at this point," she said.
