TRACKING JACKIE - THE TRAINED ATTORNEY


According to Bertha Evangelista, Executive Vice President of Title Guaranty, Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney* ORDERED - through Title Guaranty - a copy of the certificates of title for the 4 parcels of property which comprise the "seminary property." 

*Jacqueline T. Terlaje refers to herself as a "trained attorney" in her "press release" of November 17, 2015.

According to Land Management records, Bertha Evangelista and Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney, paid for those copies with personal checks on November 19, 2015, while the copies of the certificates were picked up by a Title Guaranty employee

Since Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney, ORDERED the copies of the certificates, then we must assume that Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney, picked up those copies from Title Guaranty. 

We next must assume that Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney, knew that the Declaration of Deed Restriction should have been recorded in the memorials section of the certificates because she had just sent out her "press release" two days earlier (November 17, 2015) detailing the effects of said Declaration. 

Since Jacqueline T. Terlaje is a trained attorney, we must then assume that she actually looked at the certificates to make sure they were what she ordered (otherwise she would be a careless attorney). 

Assuming Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney, is not a careless attorney, we must next assume that Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney, saw that the Declaration of Deed Restriction was MISSING from the memorials and she KNEW that the certificates were in error. 

We must next assume that Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney but not a careless attorney, delivered those erroneous certificates of title to Msgr. David C. Quitugua, Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Agana.

We must assume this because one of the certificates, obtained by Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney, was published on the front page of the Umatuna on November 29, 2015, accompanied by a supporting story quoting Msgr. David C. Quitugua saying that the copy of the certificate of title was proof that the Archbishop was the owner of the property. 

Let's review. 

If all of the facts and logical assumptions above are correct, Jacqueline T. Terlaje, despite the fact that she is a trained attorney, is either an extremely careless attorney, or she KNOWINGLY gave Msgr. David C. Quitugua false copies of the certificates of title, one of which was subsequently published in the Umatuna and then shopped to the Pacific Daily News. 

However, let's just chalk up trained attorney Jacqueline T. Terlaje's giving Msgr. David C. Quitugua a WRONG certificate of title to a mistake - an extremely careless mistake for a "trained" attorney to make, but still a mistake.

We must then assume that Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney, KNEW about this mistake as of December 15, 2015 because as per the December 15, 2015 email from the office of the Deputy Registrar of Titles to Attorney Jacqueline T. Terlaje, corrected copies of the certificates showing the memorial were sent to her. 

We also know that as of December 23, 2015, when Bob Klitzkie sent his first letter to Director of Land Management, Michael Borja, Jacqueline T. Terlaje, a trained attorney, had done NOTHING to right the error published by Msgr. David C. Quitugua in the November 29, 2015 Umatuna.
