Case Notes

Circuit court properly ruled it did not have jurisdiction to open probate proceedings where appellant failed to prove decedent was domiciled in Hawaii or owned property located in Hawaii. 88 H. 148, 963 P.2d 1124.

Property held in federal custody at the time of circuit court proceedings may not serve as the jurisdictional basis for a Hawaii probate proceeding under paragraph (2). 88 H. 148, 963 P.2d 1124.
