Bob Loblaw's Guam Law Blog

We've been here for over a month, allowing Nick to become acclimated, more or less, to his new job.  Since that is the reason we are here, he will fill you in about it.


As many of you know, I am working as a research attorney (or law clerk) for the Supreme Court of Guam.  Guam's Supreme Court is the only appellate court in the territory.  It hears any appeals from the Superior Court, which is where trials are held.  If you go on a bender, fly into a violent rage with a machete, and decide guilty pleas are for pussies (eyewitnesses, DNA evidence, and confession be damned), you'll wind up there first.  As of this writing, there is a major murder trial going on.

The Rain in Guam Falls Mainly in the Fall

We have officially been living in our apartment now for three weeks.  We still aren't completely done getting settled in, but the remaining tasks are small ones that Amanda has been chipping away at while Nick is at work during the week.  On Saturday, September 22, we went on our first Boonie Stomp to Tarzan Falls (info on that in another post) and we were planning on (finally?!!?) going to the beach this past weekend.  Unfortunately, it has been raining a lot with  60% chance of thunderstorms forecast for most days. While we were at a beach "full moon" party this past weekend, it seems like we're not meant to actually go IN the ocean. As Alaina so eloquently put it, "boo rain."  Indeed, well... it is to be expected anyway, as it is the rainy season. So we've had a couple of a lazy days puttering around the apartment.  Sounds boring, you say?


BUT... what this means for you is....

wait for it.....


You lucky ducks.
