UH lawyers sent the
operators of the universityofhawaii.xxx a cease and desist order giving the website operator until last Friday
to stop using the UH's name or face a lawsuit.
"We are glad
the website has been taken down in apparent response to our statement that we
were ready to immediately initiate legal action. Our response to any future
such issue would be similarly swift," said University of Hawaii President M.R.C. Greenwood
The site featured graphic
sexual photos of men and women in tropical settings.
Hawaii News Now has also

name for about 400 dollars. The aim is to prevent adult web sites from misusing
the university's name.
