Kathleen Aguero and Loretta Pangelinan filed a class action lawsuit last year and won their case on striking down Guam’s same-sex marriage ban.
Guam – The government of Guam will have to pay over $85,000 in legal fees to the attorneys who represented same-sex couple Kathleen Aguero and Loretta Pangelinan in a class action lawsuit last year.
Chief District Court Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood just granted the request for payment of legal fees. Aguero and Pangelinan filed a class action lawsuit last year arguing that their constitutional rights were being violated when they were denied the right to marry on Guam.
In a historic move, Judge Gatewood eventually struck down Guam’s ban on same-sex marriage.
Because Aguero and Pangelinan are the prevailing party, the judge agreed that GovGuam will have to pay about $85,000 in legal fees to four attorneys who worked on the case: Attorneys Mitch Thompson, Todd Thompson, Joe Alcantara and Bill Pesch.
