Christopher Grindling v. Department of Public Safety

IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF HAWAII


October 8, 2012

CHRISTOPHER GRINDLING,
PETITIONER,
v.
DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY, STATE OF HAWAII,
RESPONDENT.

ORIGINAL PROCEEDING (CIV. NO. 05-1-0249(3))

Electronically Filed Supreme Court SCPW-12-0000768 08-OCT-2012 10:47 AM

ORDER DENYING PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDAMUS

(By: Recktenwald, C.J., Nakayama, Acoba, McKenna, and Pollack, JJ.)

Upon consideration of petitioner Christopher

Grindling's September 5, 2012 petition for a writ of mandamus, the document attached thereto and submitted in support thereof, and the record, it appears that petitioner is seeking to enforce the April 3, 2012 order for habeas relief entered by the second circuit court in Grindling v. Hirayama et al., Civil No. 05-1- 0249(3). At this time, mandamus relief is not warranted inasmuch as petitioner has not demonstrated that he has a clear and indisputable right to relief because petitioner may seek relief as appropriate in the circuit court. See Kema v. Gaddis, 91 Hawaii 200, 204, 982 P.2d 334, 338 (1999) (A writ of mandamus is an extraordinary remedy that will not issue unless the petitioner demonstrates a clear and indisputable right to relief and a lack of alternative means to redress adequately the alleged wrong or obtain the requested action). Accordingly,

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the clerk of the appellate court shall process the petition for a writ mandamus without payment of the filing fee.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the petition for a writ of mandamus is denied without prejudice to petitioner seeking further relief in the pending circuit court case.
