Fisher v. Kealoha, 14-16514

In an action challenging the constitutionality of section 134-7 of the Hawaii Revised Statues, which prohibit plaintiff from owning or possessing firearms because of his 1997 state law conviction for harassment, the district court's summary judgment is affirmed where: 1) although plaintiff stated that he challenged only section 134-7 of the Hawaii Revised Statute, that statute, in relevant part, merely incorporated federal law; and 2) plaintiff's argument that his harassment conviction occurred many years ago, and that he has not committed any other crimes since that time, was not meaningfully distinguishable from the argument that this court rejected in US v. Chovan, 735 F.3d 1127, 1136 (9th Cir. 2013).
