Fighting the Governor’s Executive Orders on COVID in Hawaii

Attorney Marc J. Victor

Attorney Marc J. Victor recently argued at the Hawaii Court of Appeals that the Hawaii Governor’s endless emergency proclamations over COVID are illegal and unconstitutional. Governor Ige’s emergency proclamation was supposed to expire after 60 days, at which point the legislature should get involved to decide when an emergency is no longer an emergency. But it would seem Governor Ige would like to have sole discretion to make this decision by declaring another emergency after another emergency on exactly the same facts.

Attorney Victor points out that the governor should not have this unchecked power, and that the legislature should get involved after 60 days. The legislature should be the ones to decide when the emergency is over, not the Governor in his sole discretion. The legislature is the voice of the people and should be the ones to make the decision, not the governor. This is how our system of government works. We don’t give dramatic expansive powers to one person and then allow this person in their sole discretion to decide when to relinquish that power.

The Attorneys For Freedom law firm has been defending the rights of the citizens of Hawaii against government overreach during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to do so.

I am a client of the Attorney's For Freedom Law Firm's "Attorney On Retainer" program (as well as... their "Self-Protection plan"). I had an unfortunate explosion involving a firearm ("accidental discharge") that was a possible felony charge in Arizona. One call to Jonathan and it was all taken care of with no further action required on my part. They truly "just a phone call away"...read more

I want to thank Rachel Moss for her excellent work on my case. It was a traffic case that the DA... would not dismiss, Rachel got the charge dismissed without a trial and killed the DA with the facts and case law. There are lots of Lawyer jokes out there but when you need a lawyer, turn to "Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm" , no jokes just results.Terry Lread more
