Supreme Court won't review ruling on native Hawaiian tax break

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:



The U.S. Supreme Court denied a request today to review a Hawaii Supreme Court decision last year that rejected a lawsuit by non-Native Hawaiians seeking tax exemptions given to Native Hawaiian lessees under the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act.

John M. Corboy and several others filed a taxpayer lawsuit contending that the exemptions constituted racial discrimination in violation of the U.S. Constitution and federal civil rights laws.

But the Hawaii high court ruled that the taxpayers did not have legal standing to press their lawsuit.

The U.S. Supreme Court, without explaining its decision,  denied the taxpayers’ request to review the Hawaii court’s decision.
