Hawaii Supreme Court Denies Redistricting Challenge

CB March 16, 2022: … New maps for Hawaii’s legislative districts will stay as they are after the state Supreme Court on Wednesday denied a legal challenge to those maps.

The high court decided 3-2 against taking up a petition brought by Oahu, Maui and Big Island residents who sought to overturn maps drawn by the Hawaii Reapportionment Commission. The commission has faced accusations of gerrymandering and political favoritism.

Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald joined Associate Justices Paula Nakayama and Todd Eddins in denying the petition. Associate Justices Michael Wilson and Sabrina McKenna plan to file a dissenting opinion.

The brief, two-page order does not provide the majority’s reasons for denying the petition. An opinion is forthcoming.

The order also terminates a hold on candidate filing for seats in the Legislature and for U.S. Congress. That means candidates for those seats can begin pulling nomination paperwork.….
