HONOLULU – Attorneys representing churches being sued over renting Hawaii public school buildings for services say there’s nothing new in an amended lawsuit.
A judge previously dismissed a lawsuit claiming the churches owe more than $5.6 million in rental fees, saying it didn’t contain the required level of detail for a case alleging fraud. Hawaii Citizens for the Separation of Church and State founder Mitchell Kahle and public advocate Holly Huber later filed an amended suit.
Religious liberty group Alliance Defending Freedom filed another motion to dismiss, reiterating its previous argument that the state Department of Education knew how the facilities were being used. ADF attorney Erik Stanley said Monday the amended suit doesn’t include new information.
A hearing is scheduled for May 27.
