We play an award-winning segment on a water struggle on Maui, produced by Robynn Takayama back in 2008. Why? Because last week, the Hawai’i Supreme Court gave a favorable ruling, so we’ll hear an update from Earthjustice Attorney Isaac Moriwake  about this recent victory.

With Hosts RJ and Preeti.
