Guma’ Hustisia service windows to reopen today

DUE to the Commonwealth Utilities Corp.’s temporary water service interruption, the service windows at the Guma’ Hustisia or judicial building closed at 12 noon on Monday.

The service windows will resume regular business hours today Tuesday, Oct. 23, according to a public notice issued by the CNMI judiciary.

Court hearings at alternate sites continued as scheduled.

Hearings before Superior Court Associate Judges Joseph N. Camacho and Wesley M. Bogdan were held at the federal courthouse in Garapan.

But with the Commonwealth Election Commission preparing for the Nov. 6 general elections, the judiciary discontinued holding court hearings at the Gov. Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center where the election results will be tallied.

Superior Court judges are alternatively hearing cases at the federal courthouse, Northern Marianas College, and the CNMI Supreme Court courtroom which is the only area in the judicial building open to the public.

Guma Hustisia has been closed since March 16, 2018 because of a mold infestation and air-conditioning malfunction.

As requested by the judiciary, the CNMI executive and legislative branches have allotted $6.6 million for a new air-conditioning system for the judicial building and $470,000 for mold remediation.
