BLRH secures ownership rights for Laie landowner
BLRH Partners Crystal Rose and Adrian Lavarias successfully defended landowner’s rights to dozens of acres of land in Laie after a native Hawaiian activist and her supporters bolcked the only access road to the area. The case involved complex real estate questions about title history, deed interpretation, boundary locations, errors in property descriptions, access issues, and native Hawaiian tenements. After a long and contentious case, BLRH was able to successfully demonstrate our client’s title history going back to the Great Mahele and the Court affirmed our client’s ownership of the properties. The case resulted in a permanent injunction being issued against the activist barring her from the area. The Court also ordered all structures to be removed and awarded over $150,000 in damages and attorneys’ fees.
