Breach of Trust
In a 5-0 written decision, the justices allowed a 1999 class-action lawsuit to proceed to the next stage in calculating actual damages suffered by plaintiffs who have languished for years or even decades waiting for residential, ranching or farming leases on a 203,000-acre land trust.

In Kalima v. State, only 2,721 waitlisters signed on to this class action between 1991-1997.
The legal council representing this case advised the only way to receive the same benefits is to initiate another class action lawsuit with confirmed waitlisters and descendants of those who died waiting. For six years, the HHCA Waitlisters on Moku o Keawe advocated for rehabilitation for wait listers. On July 31, 2020, La Hoihoi Ea, the HHCA Waitlisters will be launching open enrollment for a new class action and immediate rehabilitation.
The HHCA Waitlisters would like to provide this opportunity for all waitlisters to enroll and join in on this class action.
On November 28, 2020, we wish to initiate our class action lawsuit from the Kalima case precedent damages and much more. Get the word out quickly as only four months is our target date to launch class action. Me ke aloha pumehana.
