Governor appoints Honolulu attorney to UH board

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) Gov. Neil Abercrombie has appointed Honolulu attorney Jeffrey Portnoy to the University of Hawaii Board of Regents.

The governor said Friday Portnoy's leadership, insight and expertise will prove a valuable asset to the UH system.

Portnoy will serve on an interim basis while the state Senate considers his nomination.

Portnoy has been an attorney with Cades Schutte LLP and been a member of the state bar since 1972. His areas of specialty include media, insurance, employment and product liability law.

He served as the community representative on the UH Athletic Advisory Board from 1996 to 2002. He was an adjunct professor in media law at the university from 1985 to 1992.

Portnoy is a graduate of Syracuse University and Duke University School of Law.
