Civil liberties in the age of the coronavirus

Hawaii Together with Keli’i Akina, April 14, 2020

Keli'i Akina and Attorney Jeff Portnoy Talk Story. Curfews, stay-at-home rules, suspension of government open-meeting and Sunshine laws - these are some of the recent measures taken by state and local officials to deal with the Coronavirus pandemic.

But how far should the government go in restricting our personal rights and liberties in the name of public safety?

Jeff Portnoy, a First Amendment attorney who frequently represents the media, calls Governor Ige's recent Coronovirus proclamations “over-broad,” and “kind of like martial law.” Join us as host Keli'i Akina and Jeff Portnoy explore this timely topic.
