(Honolulu, HI) -- An ACLU challenge to the recent primary election has fallen on deaf ears at the state's top court. The Hawaii Supreme Court today dismissed a legal challenge to the election that had been filed by the local chapter of the ACLU. The court found the lawsuit wasn't a typical election contest and the court didn't have jurisdiction over the matter. The ACLU had claimed six voters in Pahoa were denied their right to vote over the way elections efforts were handled in the region following Tropical Storm Iselle.
