Hawaii Supreme Court's Newest Chief Justice

The Hawaii State Senate unanimously confirmed the nomination of Mark E. Recktenwald for Chief Justice.

Justice Recktenwald succeeds Chief Justice Ronald T.Y. Moon to become Hawaii’s fifth Chief Justice. He will serve an initial 10-year term as the head of the State’s highest court, while overseeing the Hawaii State Judiciary.

Recktenwald joined the Supreme Court last May when Governor Lingle appointed him to replace retired Associate Justice Steven Levinson.
