Mayor Kenoi’s Office Confirms $4.5 Million Dollar Lawsuit

I mentioned the other day that there was a pending lawsuit against the county,  last night I asked Mayor Kenoi’s office about the pending lawsuit and this is what Public Information Specialist Hunter Bishop’s response was:

Damon,

We received a copy of a First Amended Complaint that was filed with the Court. We have turned the matter over to the Office of Corporation Counsel, which handles all legal matters for the County. We expect that they will respond appropriately in Court.

Hunter Bishop

I see in today’s paper… it expands a bit more on this:

“..To answer your question, unfortunately, there is an attorney who is working on your side, and I have just been served, so I can’t comment on anything,” Kubojiri said, an apparent reference to a lawsuit against the police, the county, Kubojiri, Mahuna, Mayor Billy Kenoi and others filed by Michael Ruggles, who was present at the meeting…”

Dear Mayor Kenoi and Mr. Bishop… Re: Lawsuit Against 9 County Officials

I sent off the following email to Mayor Kenoi and Hawaii County Public Information Officer Hunter Bishop tonight and I’ll be very interested in the response I get:

Dear Mayor Kenoi and Mr. Bishop,

It is my understanding that there has been a lawsuit filed against the Mayor and 8 others regarding a Marijuana related raid at a house in Fern Acres a few years ago.

It is my understanding (and I have seen the paperwork that was allegedly filed) that the lawsuit is for $4.5 million dollars.

Can you please confirm or deny that this lawsuit has been filed in the interest of public knowledge?

Sincerely,

Damon Tucker
