While mediation discussions in more than 100 child sexual abuse cases was expected to begin as early as next month, the parties have agreed that it will take additional time to complete the discovery and prepare for that to happen.

A stipulation was filed in the District Court of Guam yesterday by attorneys John Terlaje and David Lujan, on behalf of the Archdicoese of Agana and plaintiffs, respectively.

They informed the judge that the parties are discussing a “more realistic” mediation time frame of March 2018.

The parties are also still discussing and evaluating who they will choose as the mediator.
