Judge Karen Nakasone expected to issue ruling on Calvin Say residency motions today
by Larry Geller
At the close of a hearing on two motions to dismiss the latest challenge to former speaker Calvin Say’s residence held on September 18, Judge Karen Nakasone announced that she would take the matter under advisement and rule no later than September 30.
Today is September 30.
Six Palolo residents argued that Say lives with his wife in Pauao Valley, which is in a different district, and that his house in the Palolo valley is empty.
If Judge Nakasone rules favorably on either motion to dismiss, that will end the challenge to Say’s qualification to serve, at least for the moment.
Calvin Say may be home nervously sipping his tea or coffee and wondering if his political future is saved.
The question may be, which home?
