HONOLULU (AP) - A Maui man who sued the county then attempted to run for mayor has been blocked from the race because of how he filed financial disclosure statements.

Neldon Mamuad said on his MAUIWatch Facebook page that a Maui judge disqualified him in a Wednesday ruling.

The Maui News reported ( the Maui County Clerk had already said that he should be disqualified, but county officials asked a judge to weigh in on the matter.

Mamuad has said he was led to believe by a county elections clerk that because he already submitted paperwork for his role on the Liquor Control Commission he didn't have to file more disclosures. But the clerk said she told Mamuad he had to make changes to his paperwork.
