Explosive: yet another corrupt judge in the Maui vs. Monsanto case?

Explosive: Yet another corrupt judge in the Maui vs. Monsanto case?

Who is Susan Oki Mollway?

by Jon Rappoport

March 13, 2015


Last Election Day, the voters on Maui passed a resolution to temporarily stop Monsanto and Dow from continuing their toxic GMO and pesticide experiments in the “open-air laboratory” of Maui.

Monsanto and Dow sued immediately to nullify the will of the people. Since then, the case has been hung up in the courts.

A few months ago, I exposed the fact that the federal judge handling the case, Barry Kurren, was compromised, because his wife, Faye, was involved with an environmental group that had accepted huge money from Dow.

Judge Kurren, for whatever reasons, is no longer on the case. The sitting judge now is Susan Oki Mollway.

It’s all good now, right?


Hours before a scheduled March 10 hearing, which hopefully would have made progress toward a resolution of the voters of Maui’s position (ban GMOs) vs. Monsanto and Dow’s position (let us keep poisoning the people of Maui with our experimental pesticides and experimental GMOs)…boom. Judge Mollway postponed the hearing.

No progress. No resolution. More stalling, even after the voters of Maui had made their voices heard, last Election Day, with a ballot decision to put a temporary halt to all Monsanto/Dow GMO/pesticide toxic experiments on Maui.

Justice deferred once again.

So why did Judge Mollway shock everybody and cancel the March 10 hearing?

Because, she claimed, she just became aware (really?) that there are two bills up for consideration in the Hawaii State Legislature, and these bills will have a major effect on the regulation of agriculture on Maui, once they are voted on. Therefore, why not wait until the fate of those bills is decided?

Once that happens, what the voters on Maui decided last Election Day will be superseded.

The Judge rhetorically asked, “Is there any dispute that the enactment of either of these bills would nullify the [Maui voters’] ordinance at issue in this case?”

Nullify. Who cares what the voters of Maui think? No longer an issue. Irrelevant. Throw the vote in the garbage can.

Mollway seems quite sure at least one of these Senate bills will pass.

Right, except everybody with their heads in the game (except the Judge) knows this is inaccurate. The bills she is referring to are…

Well, let me allow Hawaii State Senator Russell Ruderman, who is chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, to explain it—as he DID in a March 9 letter to Judge Mollway:

“March 9
The Honorable Susan Oki Mollway
United States District Court
300 Ala Moana Blvd C-338/Honolulu, HI 96850

Aloha Judge Mollway,

I am the State Senator from the Puna District and the Chair of the State Senate Committee on Agriculture. Please accept this letter as verification that bills SB986 Relating to Agriculture (Right to Farm; Counties) and HB849 Relating to Agriculture (Right to Farm; Counties) have both missed required hearing deadlines and are effectively ‘dead’ for this legislative session.”

What?? Even with a dose of the truth from a state senator, Judge Mollway wrongly (and conveniently) continues to assume that one or both of these bills are a slam-dunk to pass and be signed into law, and on that patently false basis she postpones the hearing and gives the very strong impression that the Maui voters’ victory is now trash, to be ignored, thrown aside, and stepped on.

Could Monsanto and Dow ask for a better judge and a better ruling?

power outside the matrix

But wait. There’s more.

It’s a decision Judge Mollway made in 2012, in the Velella Project lawsuit.

Velella was an experiment in raising 2000 fish in a cage in the ocean, and feeding the fish soy oil.

Mollway decided in favor of the feds granting an aquaculture license off-shore in Hawaii, despite protests that local authorities (regional fishery management councils) should decide whether to grant the license. And…if locals had made that decision, there was a very good chance they would have said no and canceled the whole Velella Project.

So what?

Well, the Illinois Soybean Association funded a piece of the Velella Project, and they’re sponsored by Dow, Monsanto, and BASF, all heavyweight GMO companies.

I’d say there is the strong possibility those 2000 fish in a cage were fed GMO soy. Gene drift in the ocean, anyone?

Furthermore, Velella was just one step toward a massive new aquaculture industry: growing and feeding and harvesting fish in the ocean, a new industry that would undoubtedly be backed by the biotech GMO giants.

And Federal Judge Susan Oki Mollway was right there at the beginning, making sure those GMO giants (through the Illinois Soybean Association) had a hand (soy-oil) in those ocean experiments, making sure local Hawaii groups couldn’t have a voice, couldn’t stop the project.

Does that indicate where her sympathies lie? Are those sympathies behind her attempt to derail the will of the voters of Maui now?

Are there any other reporters who are ready to carry the ball and cover this scandal? Is there anyone in the anti-GMO movement, who has been backing it with cash, who is now willing to put money into a major publicity campaign, in order to expose what is happening on Maui?

    “The Honorable Susan Oki Mollway”.

    Honorable? WTF!

    Jon, you have to look at this and maybe make a post about it:

    “Experimentation on humans with GMOs and pesticides does not fall under state or federal laws pertaining to agriculture.

    “Experimentation falls under a whole other set of laws.

    “For example, laws on informed consent. The people being experimented on have a right to know exactly what is being done to them—before it is done.

    “This principle has already been violated on Maui thousands of times, by Monsanto and Dow.”

    All the farmers in Maui, should go with their tractors and surround the judge’s house, till she comes out and talk with them.

  6. Greg Osborne says:

    I hope the good people in Maui are following this blog.

    Corrupt judge?
    More than often this expression is a tautology.

    Who cares what the voters want? Do you think this is some sort of democracy?

    Hereʻs a short story to restore a little faith:

    Just recently SB211 (Forensic ID) was passing through the Senate DURING the time it was scheduled to be heard in Judge Bissenʻs Maui Court.

    Did the Honorable Judge Bissen say letʻs wait on this and see what the legislature decides?

    NO, he made a ruling in favor of the defendant (with prejudice) and the legislature agreed WITH HIM.

    SB211ʻs intent was to add Unconditionally Released persons to their subject collection for a DNA swab dragnet.

    Judge Bissen agreed with the defendant that these people have had their full 4th amendment rights restored so SB211 (as first written) would be unconstitutional.

    • Russ says:

      Yup, this is an example of how a judge is always free to decide or not regardless of the legislative process, and also to make the choice to defer to it or to try to influence it. Mollway, of course, had to lie in order to “defer”.

      And the other way around – during Vermont’s first attempt to pass GMO labeling the government used the specter of a cartel lawsuit as an excuse to fail to pass the law, which really meant they didn’t want to pass it regardless. Meanwhile a legislature or executive which really wants a policy will always enact it regardless of what it expects the courts to “decide” on it, since we all know that in the end only political will shall decide anything.

      That’s why the Community Rights movement keeps going with its anti-corporate local ordinances even though we don’t expect the courts to side with communities against corporations and the central government. We’re in it for the long political haul.

  11. Marcy Koltun-Crilley says:

    Well here’s what I don’t get. If those bills restrict the counties’ ability to enact legislation to employ agricultural practices allowed by federal or state law, then that must mean that right now, there is no such restriction. Does this show error by a previous judge and that there is a scramble to retroactively change this? This should mean that currently, the Chem/Big Ag companies have no case unless this bill were to pass.

    I have documentary evidences that former Chief District Mollway is corrupted, she used her position to provide a favor for US Attorney Nakakuni and HHS -she accepted invalid Notice of removal of civil action from US Attorney Nkakuni and removed my breach of contract claim case to Federal Court. Federal Court did not have federal Jurisdiction over my case but Mollway did not care-she is the most corrupted judge . Jon i can provide you with documentary evidences that Mollway is corrupted
