This is one of the best posts I’ve seen in a long time and having Atty. Joesting intervene is an extraordinary accomplishment. I remember Leo and Miss Tickly stating that she was one of the better State attorneys and this proves it ! I likewise had similar “non-compliant” issues with Ms. Okubo and Ms. Fukino (who, with all due respect to their positions, are indeed exhibiting nothing short of egregious criminal behavior patterns) and when I sent a letter to Atty. Joesting (about 2-3 months ago), with a litany of valid accusations, I rec’d a response that she was on vacation, so I forwarded it to Atty. Brooks. Well, despite my very well documented accusations of SEVERAL examples of blatant malfeasance displayed by the DOH, Ms. Brooks TOTALLY white-washed ALL of my accusations indicating that the State is overwhelmed with requests and they cannot handle addressing them adequately at this time.
I was hoping that with the three forerunners in these pursuits, Miss Tickly, Leo and Mr. Charleton, that SOMEONE would’ve made some headway by now, but I see it’ll be a LONG, HARD battle ! I am very interested in contributing toward this cause as I also employed an attorney to assist me in my pursuits, but after Ms. Brooks reply, it was the opinion of both myself and my attorney that the State just will not comply by their own laws, and unless someone is willing to file a lawsuit and make the commitment to visit HI for hearings, not much would be done about these, valid though they be.
Seeing Atty. Joesting’s letter is VERY encouraging, so let’s pursue this adamantly and with renewed vigor!
