Today the Maui County Council voted to settle Hawai‘i Wildlife Fund v. County of Maui, a decision to avoid a standoff at the Supreme Court that could jeopardize clean water across the United States.
The following is a statement from Isaac Moriwake, managing attorney at Earthjustice’s Mid-Pacific Office:
“The Maui County Council showed true leadership today in its decision to settle outside of court and not risk a historic standoff over the future of America’s clean water at the Supreme Court. This decision is a win not only for Maui, but for the country at large.”
