Julian Aguon will argue native inhabitants-only plebiscite case in Hawaii

Posted: Updated:

It's considered a landmark case in Guam's bid for self determination.

Special Assistant Attorney General Julian Aguon will argue the case for a native inhabitants-only plebiscite Thursday morning before a Ninth Circuit court of appeals panel in Hawaii.  The hearing will be live-streamed beginning at 5:30 a.m. Chamorro Standard time. Aguon and his team are seeking to overturn a district court ruling that the proposed vote is unconstitutional. The lawsuit was filed by local resident Arnold "Dave" Davis who argued that the plebiscite discriminates against him as a non-Chamorro.

The Governor's office says those who want to watch the arguments live, can go to the following link:  https://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/media/live_oral_arguments.php.  

ISLA 63 will also stream on radio.
