Mauna Kea - Hearing on the Universities' Motion to Dismiss
The battle over Mauna Kea's future landed in Circuit Court on Wednesday, where attorneys for the University of Hawaii argued with a coalition of Hawaiian and environmental groups before Judge Glenn S. Hara. The point of contention was a relatively technical one that avoided the merits of a lawsuit seeking to reverse the Board of Land and Natural Resources' approval of the Mauna Kea Comprehensive Management Plan.
