Chief judge denies GovGuam request for mediation
by Krystal Paco
Guam - District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood has denied the Government of Guam's request to order the federal receiver to participate in the mediation process in the Layon Landfill condemnation case. The federal judge however is allowing the receiver to help GovGuam in developing a plan to fund the $25 million condemnation judgment. As we reported GovGuam has started making payments via the tax credit in lieu of cash payment program. We should add though as the government continues non payment interest continues to pile up monthly.
