Statement by Speaker Saiki on Lawsuits Challenging Hawaii's Emergency Orders
Speaker Scott K. Saiki issued the following statement regarding the lawsuits filed by the Freedom Law Firm and Center for American Liberty in the Hawaiʻi federal district court:
"Due to our population size, Hawaiʻi requires extra safeguards to protect our families and resources during this pandemic. These lawsuits were filed by mainland entities on behalf of Hawaiʻi and non-Hawaiʻi residents. People who do not want to live with aloha and respect for others risk the health and safety of everyone."
