AG ordered to participate in feds v. GWA suit
by Mindy Aguon
Guam - The Guam Attorney General has been ordered to attend the next status conference in the federal government's civil suit against the Guam Waterworks Authority and the Government of Guam. District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood issued an order today as she noticed that the island's public sector was neither represented, nor did the AG's Office attend the last hearing.
In her order the chief judge found that the Government of Guam should become more involved in the case and as such ordered that AG Alicia Limtiaco attend the next status conference on April 7 and be prepared to fully participate in the proceedings. GWA is still working with the feds to draft a consent decree or an amended stipulated order outlining specific projects and timelines to provide clean drinking water to the people of Guam.
