On the Passing of Representative Clift Tsuji

Posted on Nov 15, 2016 in Press Releases

“On behalf of the Judiciary, I extend our sincere thoughts and condolences to Representative Clift Tsuji’s family.  Representative Tsuji was a genuinely kind and caring person, and an outstanding public servant who represented the people of Hilo with pride.  He was also a strong supporter of the new courthouse in Kona, and the work being done by pro bono attorneys who volunteer their time providing legal assistance to the community.  We thank Representative Tsuji for his service and dedication to the people of Hawaii.”

Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald, Hawaii State Supreme Court

“We are saddened by the news of the passing of Representative Clift Tsuji.  He has always been a big supporter of the Third Circuit and has attended numerous Judiciary- related functions because of his genuine care for people and our community.  We appreciate all his support throughout the years.  We will miss him and send our condolences to his family.”

Chief Judge Ronald Ibarra, Third Circuit
