Brief Description:

Petitioner/Appellant/Plaintiff-Appellant Fetu Kolio (Kolio) has applied for a writ of certiorari from the Intermediate Court of Appeals’s (ICA) June 25, 2014 Judgment on Appeal filed pursuant to its May 28, 2014 Summary Disposition Order. The ICA affirmed the Circuit Court of the First Circuit’s judgment affirming the Hawai`i Public Housing Authority (HPHA) Eviction Board’s Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, Decision and Order.

On appeal, Petitioner asserts the following question:

Whether the ICA erred in affirming the Eviction Board’s finding that Kolio’s theft conviction was a violation of his rental agreement which prohibited criminal activity that threatened the health, safety, or peaceful enjoyment of the premises by other residents or HPHA employees.
