Guam - The Civil Service Commission has a backlog of cases that are scheduled up to April 2016. During an information briefing before the Guam Legislature, executive director Tony Lamorena spoke on the cases and motions piling up before the CSC and the possibility of hiring an administrative law judge to help pick up the slack.

"And the way we were going to work it out is the commission would get together with the ALG, staff would present all the cases before them and the commission would decide ok, we'll give this to the ALJ like the courts do when they do scheduling and the ALJ will then take those cases and just like the commission hears the cases, look at all the briefs and the exhibits and come out with their own decision that decision then goes before the commissioners, the commissioners will decide whether to modify, ratify or reject that decision," he said.

Meanwhile, in regards to the ongoing cases with the Port Authority of Guam, Lamorena says a hearing of the merits continues this evening with former port employee Leonora Leon Guerrero that started Tuesday and goes on until next week.
