Southseas Broadcasting Inc., General Manager Mr. Joey Cummings was in court ready for the 1pm hearing however District Court Judge Fiti Sunia announced that all cases were being continued to 1pm Thursday so that the Family Drug and Alcohol Court could convene for criminal cases,
The small claim filed by Southseas against the Lolo and Lemanu Committee was for unpaid advertising bills on 93 KHJ and V103, amounting to $5,703.
It was filed last month after many unsuccessful attempts to get payment from key officials of he camp.
