On Friday, May 18, a three-judge U.S. District Court heard Kostick v Nago, 1:12-cv-184. This is the case that challenges Hawaii’s legislative redistricting. The plan removed from the census data all the college students who had not lived in Hawaii before they came to Hawaii to attend school, and it also removed all the military personnel who had not lived in Hawaii before they were assigned to military bases in Hawaii.
The state defends the plan by saying there is a procedure by which these students and military can fill out a form, saying they intend to remain in Hawaii in the future.
According to this story, at least one of the three judges expressed grave reluctance to postpone the August 11 primary. Filing for that primary starts on June 5.
