This morning I heard from my uncle Peter Apo that the US Supreme Court had “enjoined” Na’i Aupuni. At first I wasn’t sure whether this meant a temporary or permanent stop to the Hawaiian convention.
According to the Star Advertiser:
A U.S. Supreme Court justice on Friday issued a temporary stay blocking the counting of votes in an election that would be a significant step toward Native Hawaiian self-governance.
Justice Anthony Kennedy’s order also stops the certification of any winners pending further direction from him or the entire court.
Is this a victory for independence, or only for the Grassroot Institute?
