Hawaii: Supreme Court ruling on Superferry under fire

The state Supreme Court ruled last Monday that a law allowing Superferry to operate before completion of a related environmental study was unconstitutional because of being written specifically for Superferry. The court said the state Constitution prevents the Legislature from favoring a single entity. However, Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle announced she will ask the court to reconsider the decision which she regards as a mistake. Senate President Colleen Hanabusa thinks the Supreme Court overstepped its power in the case.Source: Honolulu Advertiser; find article here>>.
