Arguments in Kamehameha
legal case move downtown
Oral arguments for the legal challenge to Kamehameha Schools' century-old admission policy have been moved from the University of Hawaii campus to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court downtown.
A three-judge panel for the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said yesterday that the change of venue to the sixth-floor bankruptcy courtroom at the 1132 Bishop St. complex is due to the weekend flooding in Manoa.
Seating in the appellate proceeding is limited and will be reserved for attorneys, parties, court personnel and the media.
Members of the public can watch a live video of the proceeding in the main bankruptcy courtroom at the lobby level.
Because of the change, Kamehameha Schools officials said their Thursday morning prayer service scheduled for 7 a.m. at the Stan Sheriff Center will now be held at Kawaiaha'o Church at the same time.
