HI Supreme Court to Hold Hearing in Kapolei on 1/5/12; Public Invited

As part of the Hawaii Supreme Court’s efforts to make the justice system more open to the public, the high court will hold its second hearing next Thursday on a court case at the Kapolei courthouse.

The justices will hear arguments involving a property dispute in a Kauai divorce case, Kakinami v. Kakinami.

“The court’s objective in convening in Kapolei is to make the justice system more accessible to people who live and work on the west side of the island, as well as to the members of the family law bar who practice in Kapolei, ” the judiciary said.

The hearing, which is open to the public, is set for 10 a.m. Jan. 5 on the first floor of the Ronald T.Y. Moon Judiciary Complex in Kapolei and is expected to last about an hour.

The five-member high court can ask questions of the lawyers. The court customarily will not issue at ruling at the hearing, but will render a decision later.

The justices usually hold their hearings at the Aliiolani Hale Supreme Court courtroom.
