Be a part of history—attend the Calvin Say residence hearings at Circuit Court
by Larry Geller
Correction: An earlier version of this article gave the wrong date for the evidentiary hearing. The correct date is as below, August 29.
It’s hard to get a state court calendar from Hawaii’s medieval judicial computer system, so here is what’s coming up in the challenge to former speaker Calvin Say’s residence in Paolo. His current seat as a state representative is on the line.
Most of the action will be on Friday, August 29, which will be an evidentiary hearing that will include the live testimony of current House Speaker Souki unless his subpoena is quashed.Place: the fifth floor (Circuit Court floor) of the District Court building on Hotel and Alakea Streets, not at the Circuit Court Building on Punchbowl St. Come a bit early to allow time to pass through the security line and locate the courtroom on the fifth floor. The courtrooms will each have a paper posted identifying the hearing to take place inside.

It’s worth attending just to hear attorney Lance Collins argue. He has argued and won several important public interest cases including a recent Sunshine Law case before the Supreme Court. Come listen to a master at work (actually, a Ph.D.).
It actually wasn't really bloggable. I don't think the average person would have wanted to follow this in detail -- though there was quite a crowd in the peanut gallery this afternoon!
