" Friends, Advocates, Community Members:
As you know, the State of Hawai`i is appealing the Preliminary Injunction in Korab v. Koller that restored State Quest health benefits for Micronesians. Today we received the Notice of Oral Argument for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for the Korab case.
On January 20, 2012 oral arguments will be held in the case at the courthouse in San Francisco. During oral arguments the litigators and attorneys from each side will have 15 minutes to state their case before the panel of judges. At this time, we do not yet know the judges who will decide the case. After oral arguments, we do not know how long it may take to get a decision from the 9th Circuit.
We ask that all of you please forward this on to your relevant community leaders and allies. If you have questions or would like to talk to us about the case, please don't hesitate to call or email.
We will send out more detailed information when it becomes available, but wanted to get the word out in the community today."
Note: If there are any comments or questions, please feel free to post, and we'll make sure your voices will be heard.
