Supreme Court Justices are grilling the UH TMT lawyers! Mauna Kea Anaina Hou VS BLNR in Hawaii Supreme Court starting now. Nomi Carmona with BAB court cartoonist Lauryn Rego, reporting live, sitting behind Governor Ariyoshi, Princess Abigail and Attorney General Doug Chin in the Hawaii Supreme Court case contesting the TMT construction on Mauna a Wākea! Please pule kākou that we are successful in stopping the TMT! Will update you on the next break!

Appealing the Sgate's third circuit decision to uphold the conservation district has permit to UH by BLNR can only be issued if project meets and does not violate the 8 criteria.

1. BLNR granted permit to TMT before hearing, which violates due process.
2. TMT Failed to meet the 8 conservation criteria, land and circuit court concluded previously that the 12 observatories already, created substantial negative environmental impact.
3. Court previously ruled that the economic benefit balances damage to the environment and petitioners are contesting that money balances damage to environment, cultural sites and conservation districts.

BLNR argues that construction wasn't allowed to start until court was settled in the Third Circuit and they moved the project to minimize impact. Petitioners moved to take the case out of the third circuit into state Supreme Court. Today oral arguments will be made by both sides. #BABcourtreport #kukiaimauna #alohaaina #protectwhatyoulove #protectmaunakea #wearemaunakea
