ACLU attorney
leaves his post

Brent White, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii, has left the organization to take a teaching job at Kansai University School of Law in Japan.

"Brent has been an indefatigable advocate and Hawaii was fortunate to benefit from his talents. We wish him the best," said ACLU Hawaii Executive Director Vanessa Chong.

White will spend several months as a visiting scholar at Chiang Mai University in Thailand before he starts his teaching position at Kansai.

Susan Dorsey has been appointed interim legal director.

Dorsey is a graduate of the University of Hawaii's William S. Richardson School of Law and recently completed a three-year clerkship with Intermediate Court of Appeals Judge Daniel Foley.
