“What the state is required to do, according to the board’s own rules, is to have the board hold a public hearing pursuant to Sunshine Law, then make a determination first as to whether itself would conduct a contested case hearing,” said Attorney Richard Naiwieha Wurdeman. “If they decide not to, it can then decide to delegate that function to a hearing officer.”
According to Wurdeman, the state skipped that entire step and went straight to selecting Amano, without holding a public hearing.
