A SETTLEMENT conference will be held next month in the controversial Rodriguez tax settlement case in the District Court of Guam, as ordered by the magistrate judge.

Although the parties are engaged in settlement discussions, Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan ordered a continued settlement conference to be held at 1:30 p.m. on April 30.

The case involves couple Dennis G. and Asuncion S. Rodriguez who owe $2.7 million in unpaid taxes and penalties for not filing their income tax returns for tax years 1996 through 2001, according to the Department of Revenue and Taxation.

Settlement conferences were delayed due to the government’s inability to complete the process of retaining new counsel to replace the Attorney General’s Office, who withdrew from the case in September.

Gov. Eddie Calvo’s new chief legal counsel, Sandra Miller, will be representing the government in the closed-door negotiations.
