Breyer escapes Super Tuesday fracas in Hawaii

While most folks in the country are focusing on Super-Duper-Duper-Tuesday, Justice Stephen Breyer is taking advantage of the Supreme Court’s recess this week to speak at various law school and community group events – in Hawaii!

If you are in the Honolulu area today, you can catch the justice at the city’s Rotary Club luncheon today at noon, where he will be the featured speaker. Price is only $25, including lunch!

On Thursday, Breyer will join a panel discussion at a University of Hawaii Law about the Court’s 200 decision in Rice v. Cayetano, where Breyer joined the Court’s 7-2 majority in striking down a law that only native Hawaiians qualified to be trustees of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs as violative of the Fifteenth Amendment because it created a race-based voting qualification

If he has some down time in the Aloha state tomorrow, however, it is unlikely that he will be sunning or catching some waves off Waikiki Beach (pictured), given the weather forecast there. Bummer, dude.
