The federal judiciary has learned of an email scam, in which emails purporting to come from federal and state courts are infecting the recipients' computer with viruses. There have not been any reported cases here locally, but we wanted to alert the public to be cautious about this scam. In general, the public will not be contacted by the Hawaii State Judiciary for official business by email and we do not summon people to court electronically.

If you receive an email you are not sure about, please contact the Hawaii State Judiciary Public Affairs Office at (808) 539-4909.
