Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo's office said in a statement that the Legislature can take action or residents can hold a referendum to change the law "if it is the will of the people of Guam to make same-sex marriage legal" while the issue is reviewed. The Department of Public Health and Social Services should treat "all same gender marriage applicants with dignity and equality under the Constitution," the attorney general said. Omar Gonzalez-Pagan, a staff attorney with gay-rights group Lambda Legal who is involved in the Puerto Rico lawsuit, criticized Guam's governor and said he was ignoring 9th Circuit precedent.
