Guam - The Governor's Office files notice of appeal of District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood's order denying a motion for a stay. The notice of appeal indicates that the matter will be appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The government sought a stay of the Ordot consent decree case to allow a full review of the procurement and costs associated with the closure of the dump.  If a stay is not granted by 5:00 p.m. Friday, the federal receiver has been authorized to award the pending contract for the Ordot Dump closure project and the construction management contract.
