Newly Built Hawaii Courthouse To Begin Official Operations
KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii — Hawaii court officials have announced plans to converge operations in a newly built courthouse expected to open next week.
West Hawaii Today reported Thursday that the new Keahuolu Courthouse is expected to open Sept. 3 for its first day of official court operations on the Big Island.
Officials say the $95.8 million courthouse will bring together all Family, Circuit and District courts cases that were operating out of three sites in north and south Kona.
Officials say the three-story 140,000-square-foot judiciary complex is expected to have five courtrooms, a law library, traffic violations bureau, a grand jury room, a jury deliberations room, and more.
Judges say attorneys and their clients have been informed of the move and that their cases would be heard at the new location.
