Doe v. Attorney GeneralAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court reversed the judgment of the intermediate court of appeals (ICA) affirming the judgment of the circuit court dismissing John Doe's appeal from a ruling of the Department of the Attorney General (AG), holding that the record did not support the AG's ruling.
Doe, a registered sex offender in the State of Washington, requested a declaratory ruling as to whether he was required to register as a sex offender in Hawai'i before visiting Hawai'i with his family for more than ten days. The AG issued a ruling that Doe was required to register in Hawai'i. The ICA affirmed. The Supreme Court reversed, holding that the record did not support the AG's decision.
