Natatorium foes subpoena officials

Honolulu Advertiser

Mayor Jeremy Harris and seven member of ths Honolulu City Council have been subpoenaed by opponents of the Waikiki Natatorium restoration plan.

The Kaimana Beach Coalition also has subpoenaed several city and state department heads to testify at a court hearing beginning Friday. The coalition is seeking an injunction to prevent city officials from proceeding with construction on the natatorium project.

On July 1, Circuit Judge Gail Nakatani issued a restraining order preventing the city from doing any work on the project.

Coalition lawyer Jim Bickerton had argued that city officials don’t have all of the required permits.
