Baker v. Kealoha et. al Hearing Date
As March rolls around, many of us are looking forward to the 21st. On this date, we will finally have an opportunity to go into the Federal District Court of Hawaii for the Baker v. Kealoha et. al. case regarding violations of our Second and Fourteenth Amendment rights. So who is ready? I know we are – it’s been a long time coming.
So what can we expect? We will have a variety of hearings and arguments for the motions that are set forth. On the table is the Motion to Dismiss from the State and the County, a request for the judgment on pleadings by the State, and our request for a preliminary injunction against them enforcing these unconstitutional laws for the duration of the case. The hearings will go through and the State and County will initially try to have our suit thrown out for a variety of reasons that were present in their motions. Following that, we will argue why citizens should not be denied their right to self-defense. Essentially, the City has said it’s not their fault or problem and the Chief of Police doesn’t really have anything to do with it; we of course think that argument falls flat, and hope that the Judge feels the same way. As for the State, they have come out and said that they have nothing to do with it, which again we don’t really believe to be true. However, only the court can really decide what the truth is.
If you would like to come out and attend please do! It would be great to have lots of supporters there and seeing our efforts go. That said, we encourage people to show up and attend in business style attire. If you wouldn’t wear to church, it’s probably not the place to wear it in the court room (we are trying to show the true professionals we are).
