A hearing has been set, for a temporary restraining order, in Carmichael v. Ige. That hearing will take place, in-person, on July 2, 2020.
The Center for American Liberty, on behalf of plaintiffs Holly Carmichael, Aaron Carmichael, Brooke McGowan, and Russell Hirsch, and in coordination with Attorney James Hochberg and the Dhillon Law Group filed suit against Hawaii Governor David Ige on June 15, 2020.
Central to this suit is the Governor’s restrictions on interstate travel to the islands requiring a 14-day quarantine period carrying with it a criminal penalty of up to one-year in prison and/or a $5,000 fine.
“The Constitution guarantees Americans the liberty to indiscriminately travel from state to state. Governor Ige’s series of illegal proclamations violate that right and its implied protection under the Privileges and Immunities Clause of the Constitution,” said Harmeet K. Dhillon, Chief Executive Officer of the Center for American Liberty.
“It is unconstitutional for Governor Ige to require a 14-day quarantine period for all interstate travel to Hawaii. Not only is the Governor ignoring the Constitution by discriminating against non-residents with legitimate reasons to travel between states, he is destroying Hawaii’s economy and exceeding his legal authority in doing so,” concluded Dhillon.
