Guam - Gershman Brickner and Bratton Attorney Joyce Tang has filed a response opposing the government of Guam's motion asking District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood to vacate her order approving the Federal Receiver's four latest set of invoices in the ongoing Ordot Consent Decree case.  Earlier this month GovGuam's attorney Rawlen Mantanona filed the motion claiming the government's due process was violated in not being afforded the opportunity to review the invoices prior to the court's approval. The government contends that with a $92 million shortfall for the remaining consent decree projects they are scrutinizing all expenditures of public money.  In GBB's response Attorney Tang states the government makes numerous incorrect statements regarding the federal receiver and its management and use of funds. Tang wrote there is no $92 million shortfall. She added the only undisputed shortfall relates to unfunded projects imposed by the government totaling $19.9 million.  Tang also argues the government's due process is not being violated because it is the Court which determines whether the Receiver's invoices are reasonable and that the government receives a copy of the invoices when it is filed with the Court.
