Emergency rule declared invalid by Judge Ibarra in our case!!! Today, the Court recognized that the State did not follow the rule of law in creating these emergency rules. The State can no longer arrest innocent people who are on Mauna Kea at night for cultural or spiritual reasons. Mahalo nui loa to the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation and attorneys David Kauila Kopper and Camille Kalama for representing us in this case! Mahalo also to all the Ku Kia'i Mauna supporters who came to court hearings and those supported from afar. Of course, mahalo to all connected in the piko - 'o luna, 'o waena, 'o lalo, i ka piko o Mauna a Wakea,i ka piko o ke aloha, E. Kalani Flores & 'Ohana
