Lawtalk: Thirty Meter Telescope, Putting The "Puaa" Back In Ahupuaa, And Oprah Elections
by Robert Thomas, InverseCondemnation, January 12, 2016
In a segment called "Are the Courts Crazy?," (their title, not ours!), Kelii Akina and I chat about the recent decisions in the Thirty Meter Telescope case, the pig hunting as a traditional and customary native Hawaiian practice case, Hawaii's new Environmental Court, and the challenge to the Hawaiians-only election which is currently being considered by the U.S. Supreme Court (the one in which Dr. Akina is the lead plaintiff). And rest assured: we concluded that no, the courts are not crazy.
