2nd hearing called for Hawaii high court nominee

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The state Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee is calling a second hearing to address concerns about the governor's nominee for the Hawaii Supreme Court.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the Hawaii State Bar Association says it rated Circuit Judge Michael Wilson "unqualified" because of concerns about his work ethic, professionalism and conduct toward women.

Wilson couldn't be reached for comment.

The Senate Women's Caucus on Thursday said the Senate should look into the concerns. They want the judiciary committee to ask Wilson to allow the Senate to review his confidential personnel records.

The judiciary committee last week voted to recommend Wilson's confirmation despite the rating. But the committee has scheduled a second confirmation hearing for Saturday.

Committee Chairman Sen. Clayton Hee says a woman approached him with concerns about Wilson.
