SCOTUS Reapportionment, The New Environmental Court, And The TMT Oral Arguments
by Robert Thomas, InverseCondemnation, September 11, 2015
We visited Think Tech Hawaii's downtown studios for a chat with Chris Lethem about Evenwel v. Abbott, the one-person-one-vote reapportionment case currently being briefed in the U.S. Supreme Court. As we've written, Evenwel could directly affect how Hawaii has reapportioned its legislature since statehood, and is a case to follow closely.
We also discussed Hawaii's new Environmental Court and the recent Hawaii Supreme Court oral arguments in the "Thirty Meter Telescope" case.
We didn't know until earlier in the day that Chris would be the host. Which was a pleasant surprise because he is a former client in a successful case we took to the Hawaii Supreme Court a few years ago. Small town, no?
