>>> Register here.
Here's the description of the program:
Governments at every level in Hawaii have responded to the coronavirus pandemic by implementing lockdown measures never before seen in the United States during peacetime. We have been forced to give up many of our freedoms, but by what authority can our governor and mayors shutter our businesses, declare vast swaths of our communities “non-essential” and make us stay home? Are there any legal limits to these shutdowns?
Joining us for a free webinar at noon, Tuesday, April 14, to help answer these questions will be Grassroot Scholar Robert Thomas, a widely published attorney who is a director with the law firm Damon Key Leong Kupchak Hastert in Honolulu.
Moderator for the webinar will be Keli‘i Akina, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii.
We'll cover a range of topics, including:
Can the government be liable if a business fails after being ordered to shut down?
Can I be ordered to "stay home?" What about going to religious services, or protesting?
Can a property owner be forced to allow tenants to remain rent-free?
Can private property be commandeered during an emergency?
Are freedom of information laws suspended?
