CONNER, CHAIR OF HO#OMANAPONO POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE, Petitioner, vs. THE HONORABLE BLAINE KOBAYASHI, Judge of the District Court of the Second Circuit, State of Hawai#i, Respondent Judge, and STATE OF HAWAI#I and SAMUEL KALEIKOA KAEO, Respondents. ORIGINAL PROCEEDING (CASE NO. 2DCW-17-0002038) ORDER DISMISSING PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDAMUS (By: Recktenwald, C.J., Nakayama, McKenna, Pollack, and Wilson, JJ.) Upon consideration of petitioner DeMont R. D. Conner’s petition for writ of mandamus, filed on January 26, 2018, and the record, it appears that petitioner fails to demonstrate that he has standing, as a non-party in the underlying criminal proceeding, to seek the requested extraordinary relief from the district court’s rulings in the underlying proceeding. See Kaho#ohanohano v. State, 114 Hawai#i 302, 162 P.3d 696 (2007). Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the petition for writ of mandamus is dismissed. DATED: Honolulu, Hawai#i, February 5, 2018. /s/ Mark E. Recktenwald /s/ Paula A. Nakayama /s/ Sabrina S. McKenna /s/ Richard W. Pollack /s/ Michael D. Wilson 2
