Bias suit costs Gov Guam almost $1M in fees

Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood of the District Court of Guam awarded $947,717 in attorneys’ fees and costs, in a civil rights action that dealt with the topic of self-determination of the political status of the island and who should have the right to vote on a related referendum. The court noted that had the Department of Justice taken responsibility to address the issue 10 years ago, the amount of fees would not have been so high.
