The lawsuit against the Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority filed in District Court has been amended.
The amended suit names GHURA board members Sabino Flores, Monica Guzman, Carl Dominguez, George Pereda, Joseph Cameron, and Joseph Leon Guerrero as defendants in the case.
Court documents state that plaintiff Ray Topasna, the current GHURA director, is seeking full recovery of all federal monies paid to former GHURA legal counsel Mark Smith.
This is to include money that Smith was paid to serve as legal counsel and as a landlord through Section 8.
Topasna is also seeking interest on his back pay and compensation for “the special damages” he sustained as a result of his termination.
The special damages would include the cost of the litigation and attorney fees.
