It's that time of year already - the American Samoa Bar Association is getting ready for its annual Christmas party!
We haven't had a big Christmas party in a few years, so this year we're trying our best to put together something special that can bring together all members of the bar to come together in friendship and fun to celebrate the last year and look forward to 2016.
Location: Moana O Sina, Fogagogo, American Samoa
Date: Saturday, December 5, 2015
Time: 5:00pm to 9:00pm (subject to change)

The American Samoa Bar Association has posted new filings in the federal case of Tuaua v. United States, concerning citizenship for American Samoans.

These filings and more information can be found on the Legal Issues page concerning citizenship - here.
