Ethics prosecutor terminated from Judiciary


Guam – Late Monday afternoon marked the last day for Supreme Court Ethics Prosecutor Bruce Bradley as he was escorted out of the Superior Court of Guam.

Details surrounding his termination could not be provided by Judicary Spokesperson Shawn Gumataotao, nor was he able to confirm if his abrupt termination was related to allegations of sexual harrassment or misconduct.

“Bruce A. Bradley is no longer an employee of the Judiciary of Guam. The position of
Ethics Prosecutor is an unclassified position, an-at will appointment accountable to the
Chief Justice. We have started a search for Mr. Bradley’s replacement. The Ethics
Committee will continue its work. The public confidence in the attorney and judiciary
disciplinary systems should not be affected.” stated Supreme Court Court Chief Justice Katherine Maraman.

An Ethics prosecutor is charged with handling complaints of impropriety among practicing lawyers, holding them accountable to the code of ethics.

It is unclear at this time if his termination will result in any adverse standing with the Guam Bar Association.

PNC has reached out to Bradley, however, no response regarding his termination was available at the time of publishing this article.
