War Crimes?

The matter of war crimes and Kingdom claims related to Hawai‘i were recently addressed by the Hawai‘i Supreme Court, where following ‘War Crimes’ accusations, a unanimous Order of the Hawaiʻi Supreme Court, issued on May 1, 2017, publicly censured a local attorney for making “with reckless disregard as to the truth or falsity of the allegation” accusations that a Judge committed “war crimes under international Conventions”. In the Order, the Hawaiʻi Supreme Court noted, “In short, we conclude that the allegations serve no other purpose but to harass the presiding Judge by threatening him with dire consequences for his previous and subsequent rulings in the litigation.”

It further concluded that the allegations “‘imply a false assertion of fact’” which could “reasonably be interpreted as stating actual facts about their target” which are not true, and the charge of war criminal does, by its plain language, charge the Judge with “commission of a criminal offense.”” It noted the respondent “filed a frivolous document that served no legal or practical purpose …” The Intermediate Court of Appeals had similar language related to Kingdom claims. They note, “Our appellate courts have repeatedly held that claims involving the applicability of the Kingdom of Hawai'i laws are without merit.”
