Justices order Guam Bar hold new election


The Supreme Court of Guam has ordered the GBA to hold a new election.
Guam – The Guam Bar Association’s election last year has been deemed invalid and now Supreme Court justices want the bar to hold another election.

In an order issued Monday, justices ruled that the election held by the Guam Bar last year did not follow the GBA’s bylaws. Specifically, election ballots were mailed incorrectly and attempts to correct the mistake still had material flaws.

The case was brought to the attention of the Supreme Court by Attorney Gloria Lujan Wolff, who lost last year’s election for President of the association. In their decision, the justices ordered that the election is void, GBA conduct a new election and the terms for the newly elected officials to extend into 2019.
