Hawai‘I State Judiciary:

Supreme Court To Hold Oral Argument Remotely
The Hawai‘i Supreme Court has announced it will use video conferencing to conduct its May 5 oral argument. This is the first time a supreme court oral argument will be held via video conference, with the five justices and the parties’ attorneys participating from separate locations. Anyone can view the proceedings live via the Judiciary’s YouTube channel. “During these unprecedented times, conducting oral arguments remotely helps to protect everyone’s health and safety, and live streaming provides the public with access to observe the proceeding while current courtroom restrictions are in place,” said Chief Justice Mark E Recktenwald. The case being heard is Carmichael,et al. vs. Board of Land and Natural Resources, et al, and will begin at 10 a.m. Until the COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed, future oral arguments are expected to be held in this manner.
