Terms Used In Hawaii Revised Statutes > Chapter 136

  • Appeal: A request made after a trial, asking another court (usually the court of appeals) to decide whether the trial was conducted properly. To make such a request is "to appeal" or "to take an appeal." One who appeals is called the appellant.
  • Appellate: About appeals; an appellate court has the power to review the judgement of another lower court or tribunal.
  • Appointing authority: means a department head or designee having the power to make appointments or changes in the status of employees. See Hawaii Revised Statutes 201H-107
  • Civil service: includes all positions within a jurisdiction that are not exempted by section 46-33, 76-16, or 76-77, or by other law and must be filled through civil service recruitment procedures based on merit. See Hawaii Revised Statutes 201H-107
  • Civil service employee: means an employee who has met all requirements for membership in the civil service under section 76-27. See Hawaii Revised Statutes 201H-107
  • Complaint: A written statement by the plaintiff stating the wrongs allegedly committed by the defendant.
  • Cross examine: Questioning of a witness by the attorney for the other side.
  • Director: means the head of the central personnel agency for a jurisdiction regardless of title, whether it is the director of human resources development, director of personnel, director of personnel services, or personnel director. See Hawaii Revised Statutes 201H-107
  • Equitable: Pertaining to civil suits in "equity" rather than in "law." In English legal history, the courts of "law" could order the payment of damages and could afford no other remedy. See damages. A separate court of "equity" could order someone to do something or to cease to do something. See, e.g., injunction. In American jurisprudence, the federal courts have both legal and equitable power, but the distinction is still an important one. For example, a trial by jury is normally available in "law" cases but not in "equity" cases. Source: U.S. Courts
