Lujan: rush to mediate a "scam"

Posted: Updated:

In District Court this morning, Defense Attorney David Lujan called the rush to mediation a “scam”.  Attorney Lujan represents almost all the plaintiffs who have filed child sex abuse complaints against local catholic priests.

During court proceedings this morning, Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan set a hearing for the “motion to dismiss” the cases filed against Archbishop Anthony Apuron for August 29th. This while all other cases filed against other local priests were stayed and will proceed with mediation.

Assigned as mediator is retired Federal Judge Michael Hogan from the state of Oregon. He is scheduled to meet with the parties in Hawaii in September with a visit to Guam to follow in late October.

Meanwhile, attorney Lujan has until the end of today to file his opposition to Apuron’s motion to dismiss filed by his attorney Jacque Terlaje.
