Earthjustice Responds to President-elect Trump’s Nomination of Rep. Ryan Zinke as Secretary of the Interior
Isaac Moriwake, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: "In the plantation era—Wailuku Water Company's predecessor used to be Wailuku Sugar—built this ditch system, and it was taking the stream flows, draining the streams and rivers in this area dry to feed its sugar plantation."
Jan Hasselman, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: "There’s this secret stuff that even we don’t have in the litigation. We were aware there were documents not available to us and we’ve been asking for them."
