US Attorney Kenji M. Price for the District of Hawai‘i was asked to step down by the Biden administration.

On Feb. 9, Acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson instructed most presidentially-appointed US Attorneys, which included Price, to submit their resignations. These resignations were requested to be effective Feb. 28.

“Our office is taking all necessary steps to ensure a smooth transition and will provide more information soon,” officials from the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Hawai‘i stated.
