Court Denies Younex’s Motion to Intervene in Decision Voiding Its Variance


Guam – Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson  has denied a motion to intervene brought by Younex International Corporation.

According to a release from Attorney Mike Phillips:

The Court found Younex’s delay in filing its motion manifestly unreasonable.

On February 10, 2011, as a result of a case filed by Jones Town resident Maryann Sablan, the Court ruled that the Guam Land Use Commission’s approval of Younex’s zone variance application NULL and VOID.

Attorney Darleen Hiton explained the consequences of the Court’s decision today. “This case is a simple example of the Government of Guam failing to follow the law.  Hopefully this ends the last minute attempt to reverse the Court favorable ruling and three (3) years of litigation.  My client is extremely relieved that the Court would not tolerate blatant disregard for established rules and regulations.”

Attorney Hiton added, “The People of Guam are the real victors in this case because justice prevailed.”
