Gov nominates Wilson to Hawaii Supreme Court

By 67AM KPUA News

HONOLULU (AP) The governor is appointing a circuit court judge and former chairman of the state Board of Land and Natural Resources to the Hawaii Supreme Court.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie announced Tuesday his nomination to the high court is Michael Wilson.

Abercrombie selected Wilson from the Hawaii Judicial Selection Commission's list of six nominees.

If confirmed by the state Senate, Wilson will replace retiring Associate Justice Simeon Acoba Jr.

Acoba is retiring in March, when he reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70.

Wilson is Abercrombie's third appointment to the five-member court.

The 60-year-old judge graduated from Kailua High School, University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Antioch School of Law.

Abercrombie says Wilson's resume also includes commissioner for the Kahoolawe Island Reserve Commission and executive director of the state Division of Consumer Advocacy.
