Power outage closes Honolulu District Courthouse

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A power outage at 2 p.m. Monday at the Honolulu District Court courthouse at 1111 Alakea Street has shut down the building's electricity and telephone lines.

The courthouse, also known as Kauikeauoli Hale, is closed for the rest of the day.

Court officials anticipate the building will be open to the public Tuesday.

As a result of the outage, the Hawaii Supreme Court has issued an order extending -- by one day -- any Honolulu district court matter with a filing or hearing due date of February 14.

Any party whose case was scheduled during the afternoon calendar of Feb. 14 but who was unable to appear because of the outage, should call 538-5767 for civil cases or 538-5500 for traffic cases.
