The Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals (ICA) is the intermediate appellate court in Hawaii. It hears nearly all appeals from trial courts and some state agencies. The ICA is composed of six judges who sit in panels of three.

The Intermediate Court of Appeals has discretionary authority to entertain cases submitted without a prior suit when there is a question of law that could be the subject of a civil action or a proceeding in the Circuit Court, or Tax Appeal Court, and the parties agree upon the facts upon which the controversy depends.[1]

Cases in the Intermediate Court of Appeals may be transferred to the Hawaii Supreme Court upon application to the Supreme Court under circumstances set out in the Hawaii Revised Statutes. The ICA's Judgments on Appeal and dismissal orders are subject to the Hawaii Supreme Court's discretionary review by way of an application for a writ of certiorari.

The court's judges are chosen according to a plan laid out in Article 6, Section 3 of the Hawaii Constitution.

Procedure:

  • A list of 4-6 nominees is prepared by the Hawaii Judicial selection Commission.
  • That list is presented to the governor.
  • The governor chooses a judge from the list.
  • The governor's choice is then subject to the advise and consent of the Hawaii Senate.[4]
