Case dismissed against Hawaii County official

By Associated Press

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) A judge has dismissed a case challenging the qualifications of Hawaii County's environmental management director.

But Councilwoman Brenda Ford's attorney says they will refile the petition against Environmental Management Director Bobby Jean Leithead Todd.

West Hawaii Today reports the judge dismissed the case Wednesday because Leithead Todd hadn't been properly served.

The judge said since she's being sued as an individual, serving an agent at her office isn't allowed. The papers were served at Leithead Todd's county office and left with a secretary.

Ford is asking the court to compel Leithead Todd to justify her qualifications for the position. Ford says the county charter requires the environmental management director to hold an engineering degree or a related degree.

Leithead Todd says she's saving for the victory, for now.
