The State Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee Thursday unanimously recommended the confirmation of Circuit Judge Michael Wilson for the State Supreme Court. Senators rejected the Hawaii State Bar Association's conclusion that Wilson was "unqualified" for the position. And, they condemned the unsubstantiated allegations about Wilson's character that surfaced during the bar's review process. Dozens of Wilson's friends and colleagues testified about his character. The full Senate will vote later this month on Wilson's nomination.
