Former senator Telo Taitague sued for defamation
by Mindy Aguon
Guam - Former senator Telo Taitague found herself in court today as she was being sued for defamation and intentionally inflicting emotional distress against another person. Taitague, who is employed at the Governor's Office, was sued by Arminda Tuazon, who obtained a temporary restraining order against the former lawmaker.
It's alleged Taitague got into an argument with another guest during a gathering that involved social gambling and Tuazon asked Taitague to leave to prevent the argument from escalating. Taitague then allegedly called Tuazon's boss alleging his employee was involved in illegal gambling and was under investigation, which was determined to be untrue. Tuazon obtained the restraining order but today in court both parties had come to a resolution and agreed to have the lawsuit dismissed.
Neither party would comment further about the case.
