In re Office of Information Practices Letter No. F16-01
An individual who disagreed with an opinion from the Office of Information Practices sued OIP asking for judicial review of the decision. OIP argued that only government agencies, not individuals, have the right to judicial review under the Sunshine Law. After the circuit court agreed with OIP and dismissed the case, the individual appealed and asked the Hawai`i Supreme Court to take the case on an application for transfer. The Law Center sought leave to file an amicus curiae–friend of the court–brief supporting that request. No. SCAP-16-0000568. After the Supreme Court denied the application for transfer, the Law Center sought and was granted leave to file an amicus curiae brief with the Intermediate Court of Appeals. No. CAAP-16-0000568.
