Campbell estate heiress Abigail Kawānanakoa has filed a lawsuit against the City and County of Honolulu to re-address the City Council’s approval of the rail project.  The lawsuit seeks to invalidate key votes of two former Honolulu City Council members who favored the rail project.  Former city council members Romy Cachola and Nestor Garcia agreed to pay fines to the city ethics commission for accepting gifts from lobbyists who profited from rail construction.

Bridget G. Morgan is an attorney representing Kawānanakoa. 

 Morgan says the goal of the lawsuit is to restore public trust in the voting process.
