On Friday, February 4, 2011, starting at 10 a.m. HST, we will be live blogging the Hawaii Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor's hearing on the appointment of Judge Sabrina McKenna as an Associate Justice of the Hawaii Supreme Court. Our Damon Key colleague Rebecca Copeland will be in the room covering it.
We live blogged the Governor's announcement of Judge McKenna's appointment here. This is Governor Abercrombie's first appointment to the court, and breaking from past tradition, he did not publicly announced the list of candidates transmitted to him from the Judicial Selection Commission. We're guessing this confirmation hearing will not generate much opposition, so the hearing will be more like Justice Recktenwald's, and not like Judge Leonard's.
Go here to find out more how to submit testimony (due 24 hours prior to the hearing).
If you can't make it to the hearing, come join the live blog.
