ARAKAKI V. CAYETANO -- A Multiethnic Group of 16 Hawai'i Citizens File Suit Challenging the Constitutionality of Both the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act





Editor's note: This lawsuit was filed March 4, 2002 in the U.S. District Court in Honolulu. It will be referred to informally as Arakaki#2. (There was a previous successful lawsuit filed in July 2000 with the same first-named plaintiff, Mr. Earl Arakaki, regarding the right of candidates to run for OHA trustee without racial restrictions. That previous lawsuit, now informally known as Arakaki#1, has extensive information at

Everything below here pertains to Arakaki#2. Non-lawyers can certainly read and understand most of the main points in these documents. Lawyers will note that captions, certificates of service, and other documents have not been included here. The intention is to present the most important documents of greatest interest to the general public.
