State Sen. Malama Solomon, appointed to office last week by Gov. Neil Abercrombie, is withdrawing as a plaintiff in a pending lawsuit against the state.

A news story about her involvement in the case was published by Hawaii
Reporter last week.

“I will be withdrawing from the suit,” Solomon said. “I kind of forgot about it.”

The case involves a dispute over water usage on Department of Hawaiian Home Lands pastoral property leased to a group of Native Hawaiians including Solomon’s mother.

Solomon said her mother will remain as a plaintiff in the case.

Solomon previously served as a Big Island legislator and ran unsuccessfully for lieutenant governor in 2006.

Abercrombie named her to fill the vacancy created when Sen. Dwight Takamine,  D-1st (Hilo-Hamakua-Waimea) resigned to become director of the state Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.
