UH law school to host discussion on lawsuit against live-firing range on Guam

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

 

The University of Hawaii law school plans to host a discussion on a lawsuit filed against the U.S. military to prevent it from building a live fire training range in the ancient Guam village of Pagat. 

The discussion hosted by the Environmental Law Program on Tuesday is due to feature the plaintiff’s lawyers, Matthew Adams and Carl Christensen. 

The Guam Preservation Trust, We are Guahan, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Honolulu in November. It argues the Navy failed to adequately consider alternative locations to Pagat that would have less of an impact on the environment and historic sites. 

The Navy wants to build the training range for Marines due to move to Guam from Okinawa.
