In its opinion, the court found that Hawai‘i District Court Judge Susan Mollway “properly dismissed Amsterdam’s action because Amsterdam’s moral and cultural objections to same-sex marriages are generalized grievances and are insufficient to confer Article III standing.” Judge Mollway found that Amsterdam lacked standing because he failed to show he suffered any injury as a result of the Marriage Equality Act.
