Dear GBA Members,

The DWI Court will be inaugurated on November 15, 2010 as a one year pilot project with a consolidated court docket before Judge Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson. Part of the project will be the launching of a standard misdemeanor plea advisement form applicable to driving under the influence charges involving first and second offenders. The proposed form can be viewed on the GBA website at www.guambar.org.

The form will assist the defense bar in representation of DUI clients, eliminate paperwork delays and prompt speedy resolution of cases in DWI Court. Your review and input is greatly appreciated.

Please provide comments regarding the proposed form no later than October 29, 2010. Comments should be directed to the Clerk of the Supreme Court of Guam located on the third floor of the Guam Judicial Center. Their contact information is as follows:

Suite 300 Guam Judicial Center

120 West O’Brien Drive Hagatna, Guam 96910-5174

Phone: 475-3162/3120 Fax: 475-3140
