State Supreme Court to Hear Act. 2 Appeal

"State Supreme Court to hear Superferry law challenge"
By Christie Wilson October 14, 2008

"The Hawaii Supreme Court today agreed to hear an appeal seeking to invalidate a state law that allowed Hawaii Superferry to begin operation last year without an environmental impact statement.

The court said it was transferring the case from the lower Intermediate Court of Appeals and would schedule oral arguments because it involves a matter "of imperative or fundamental public importance." A date for arguments was not announced.

The Sierra Club, Maui Tomorrow and the Kahului Harbor Coalition requested the transfer...

...The three groups appealed, and today's action by the Hawai'i Supreme Court means they will get another chance to argue that Act 2 is unlawful."

Aloha, Brad
