On December 19, 2012 the Guam Supreme Court ruled in favor of Docomo, affirming the judgement of the Superior Court of Guam in the case of Ramos v. Docomo Pacific, Inc., 2012 Guam 20. Edgar Ramos had sued Docomo Pacific for wrongful termination, but the trial court had dismissed his complaint. Attorneys at Calvo Fisher & Jacob briefed the case to the Supreme Court and CFJ partner Kathy Fisher successfully argued the case on behalf of Docomo.
The Supreme Court found that while an at-will employee cannot be terminated if such termination would be counter to public policy, that Ramos had not met the required burden of proof. The case is significant because while the Court ruled against Mr. Ramos, it established the principle that the public policy exception to at-will employment is now the law in Guam: "We join the overwhelming majority of jurisdictions who recognize that an at-will employee cannot be terminated if such termination would be couter to public policy."
