Ho`ohiki Disclaimer

Online access to case information is provided by the State of Hawai`i Judiciary (Judiciary) as a public service. Ho`ohiki provides access to information from criminal and civil case files in the Circuit and Family Courts and certain civil cases of the District Courts of the State of Hawai`i. The information cannot be removed unless the case records are sealed by a court order. Any unauthorized attempt to remove or change the online information is strictly prohibited.

The information displayed is from official records, but does not comprise all information from court records available to the public. Court pleadings, for instance, may be found in case files that may be viewed and copied at a courthouse, but are not currently available through this Web site. Confidential cases, sealed cases and sealed documents also are not available online. The Judiciary has attempted to protect personal identifiers by blocking electronic data fields containing Social Security numbers, birth dates, home addresses and home telephone numbers. However, if otherwise private information is revealed in evidence, pleadings or other documents (such as exhibits, affidavits and transcripts) that are part of the public court record, the information is accessible in paper form at a courthouse and will be available electronically when imaged court records are made accessible to the public.

Case information provided by the Judiciary through this website is made available "as is," with no warranties, express or implied, including any implied warranties of merchantability, accuracy, non-infringement, or fitness for a particular purpose. In no event shall the Judiciary and its employees, officers, contractors, agents or representatives be liable for damages of any nature whatsoever arising from the use of or inability to use this website or the online databases, or for the accuracy or validity of any information provided. While the Judiciary uses reasonable efforts to provide accurate, complete and current information on this website, it does not guarantee or represent that the information contains no errors, omissions or inaccuracies. Assessing the accuracy and reliability of the information is the user's responsibility.

Certified court records are available in paper form at each courthouse.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, the Judiciary updates case information every evening. Generally, therefore, data is current to within 48 hours of the date a court document is filed or a court proceeding is heard.

By accessing Ho`ohiki, you agree that you have read, understood and will abide by all statements set forth in this disclaimer.

I have read and agree to the terms of the above disclaimer and wish to:
