The Hawai'i Supreme Court denied a petition for reinstatement of an attorney who was suspended for five years in 2005. The court concluded that extended consideration of the petition was not necessary in light of his representation of a company (as well as himself) in a disputed matter. The company is called Gourmet Delite, Inc.
The court found that, while he could represent himself, he could not represent the company, notwithstanding his claim that such representation was permissible under Hawai'in law.
