Kahahawai wins? 1892.

[Found under: “NU HOU HAWAII.”]

On this past Saturday evening, the jury decided in favor of Kahahawai’s suit for damages against the Hawaiian government for the government taking the water of Nuuanu and causing trouble for his irrigated taro terraces and drying them up. Kahahawai claim for the damages was $10,000, but the jury gave him $2,500.
