New Kapolei court complex to be named after Moon

 A new judiciary complex in Kapolei is set to be named for Hawaii Supreme Court Justice Ronald Moon.

The ceremony is scheduled for today, at 1:30 p.m.. The complex is located at the intersection of Kapolei Parkway and Kamokila Boulevard. U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii is scheduled to participate in the festivities.

The Kapolei court building contains twelve non-jury courtrooms and one jury courtroom.

Moon by law must resign before Sept. 4, when he turns 70. Associate Justice Mark Recktenwald has been nominated by Gov. Linda Lingle for the post.

Moon ascended to the chief justice post in March 1993 after three years as an associate justice. Previously, he was a circuit court judge for eight years.
