Description: Two memos precedes the legal document. From the cover memo: "Enclosed is a copy of the Settlement Agreement entered into with the Plaintiffs to resolve the geothermal litigation. In general terms, the State is agreeing that it will not support an inter-island cable geothermal project during the term of Governor Cayetano. However, if an energy emergency occurs, we can apply to the circuit court for relief from that provision. Additionally, paragraph 3 commits the Director of DLNR or his designee to participate in meetings with the Plaintiffs and Campbell Estate to cooperatively seek measures to protect the rain forest. Note these are cooperative measures | we did not agree to force anything on Campbell Estate. Finally, the Agreement acknowledges the end of all contracts and other work engaged in by the state to study or further an inter-island cable project. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to inhibit the State's ability to regulate, monitor, or license activity in connection with a wholly private inter-island project. Nor does anything in the Agreement limit development of geothermal energy to meet the needs of the Big Island as opposed to a development for export.
