Judge to hear motions in airport security privatization lawsuit

July 16, 2019

Motions are scheduled to be heard in August on HGEA's lawsuit to stop the privatization of police and law enforcement services at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

HGEA has filed a motion for summary judgment asking the court to stop the current practice of using contract security officers, which HGEA and Unit 14 members believe is in violation of the Hawaii State Constitution and civil service laws of the State of Hawaii.

The State of Hawaii has also filed a motion disputing our position and asking that the case be dismissed.

Both motions are scheduled to be heard at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 14, in the courtroom of the Honorable Jeffrey P. Crabtree at 1111 Alakea Street, 5th floor, Honolulu, Hawaii.

We will keep you updated on the outcome of the hearing through eBulletin and your Union stewards.
