Local businessman Sedfrey Linsangan has filed a complaint in the District Court against the United States alleging the federal government is violating the constitutional rights of the people of Guam. At issue are the farm bill banning cockfighting, the denial of Guam's Washington delegate being allowed to vote in Congress, Guam not being able to have a Senator in the U.S. Senate, and the denial of Guam's voting rights.

Linsangan writes "we should not be denied to preserve our culture, custom, tradition, and political rights because its secured by the U.S. Constitution".

He argues "How will the U.S. Citizens in the mainland react if the U.S. Congress bans horse racing, deer hunting, shooting birds and ducks, training whales and other animals against their will?"
