YO ON THE LOCAL RULES DF THE SUPERIOR COURT OF GUAM ) ) ) On May 31, 2007, this court adopted the Local Rules of the Superior Court of Guam. However, the incorrect version of the Small Claims Rules was inadvertently published therein. The Small Claims Rules were previously codified at Rule 92 of the Guam Rules of Civil Procedure. In 1999, the Small Claims Rules were revised by the Judicial Council. However, the 1999 revision was not reflected in updates to Title 7 of the Guam Code Annotated wherein the Suam Rules of Civil Procedure were previously codified. Thus, the old Rule 92 was inadvertently adopted by this Court in Promulgation Order No. PRM , which moved :he Small Claims Rules into the Miscellaneous Rules of the Local Rules of the Superior Court of Suam. Pursuant to the court's authority to "make and promulgate rules governing the administration of judiciary and the practice and procedure in the courts of the judicial Branch of Guam" 48 U.S.C (a)(6), the Small Claims Rules adopted by the Judicial Council ir 1999, and as amended herein, are hereby adopted and shall be inserted into Miscellaneous Rules ORIGINAL Page10f2
