Hawaii Supreme Court Issues Landmark Ruling On News Media And Public Access To Criminal Trials

High Court Rebukes Judge Who Held Secret Sessions During Trial of U.S. State Department Special Agent Accused of Murder in Honolulu

HONOLULU –  In a ruling that media attorneys say is one of the strongest endorsements in the country regarding the right of the news media and the public to have access to criminal trial proceedings, the Hawaii Supreme Court sided with Hawaii’s only statewide daily newspaper – the Honolulu Star-Advertiser – and Hawaii News Now (a CBS and NBC affilitate) and rebuked a Circuit Court judge who held closed on-the-record hearings with attorneys in one of Hawaii’s highest-profile trials.

Strong Demand For The Ritz-Carton Residences, Waikiki Beach

80 Percent of the Waikiki project’s luxury residences now sold

HONOLULU – The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach affirmed its status as one of Hawaii’s most sought-after luxury residential addresses with buyers snapping up the majority of the East Tower residences last week at the opening sales events, held simultaneously in Tokyo and Waikiki.

The outpouring of early interest in the East Tower, only months after the West Tower residences sold out, indicates a healthy demand for luxury real estate in Waikiki as 80 percent of the project’s residences are now sold to buyers primarily from the United States, Japan and other parts of Asia.

“We are very pleased with the grand opening sales success, which we attribute to both Waikiki’s reputation as an exciting international urban resort destination and the strength of The Ritz-Carlton brand,” said Casey Federman, PACREP LLC’s authorized representative.
