Supreme Court Orders Stay on Native Hawaiian Election.

A Native Hawaiian Election that would elect 40 delegates to a constitutional convention, or ‘aha, has been blocked by United States Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy through a temporary stay declared on Friday. Michael Seabright’s ruling against litigation filed by two non-Hawaiians and four Native Hawaiians, claiming that the election violated their First Amendment rights. Work during the convention would include efforts to create a potential self-determination governing document and ratification referendum of that governing document, with the potential of self-governance under the U.S.
