Guam - Today marked the deadline for the Guam Election Commission to submit its response to a federal lawsuit filed by Attorney Howard Trapp. As we reported, Trapp filed a petition for a writ of prohibition with the District Court of Guam asking for the legislative-submitted referendum on medicinal marijuana to be taken off the general election ballot. During the GEC meeting last week, legal counsel Jeff Cook noted it did not appear Trapp had the standing or legal basis to bring the matter to the district court. He further stated that his response would also ask that in the event District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood ruled in Trapp's favor, that the GEC be able to leave the measure on the ballot but will not tabulate it as ballots have already been printed.
