Luis Reyes awaits update on settlement
Guam - Former Department of Education superintendent Luis Reyes is back in court for a status hearing today in his case against the Department of Education, formerly the Guam Public School System. Reyes is expected to get an update on his settlement and money owed to him as part of his wrongful termination case.
Reyes is trying to address the readjustment of the retirement annuity he says is owed to him. The court you may remember ordered the cash-strapped agency to pay Reyes two years ago. He is owed $250,000 plus 6% annual interest, along with the retirement pay. The Education Board fired Reyes in 2008 following the closure of Southern High School by the Health and Safety Task Force.
