Court orders release of Native Hawaiian Roll enrollment list

The Hawaii Circuit Court has ordered the Native Hawaiian Roll Commission to release its enrollment list.

That’s after a lawsuit was filed by Judicial Watch, with the assistance of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, after an open records request for the roll was repeatedly denied by the commission.

The court rejected the commission’s reasons for denying the request, saying there is a need for a transparent government.

The Native Hawaiian Roll, which is a list of names, was established in 2012. There are more than 122,000 people registered.
