Could this be the same Sabrina McKenna who took me to a karaoke bar in Honolulu maybe 20 years ago? Sure enough, there was her name and (old) home telephone number (no cell phones then) in my address book. I met Sabrina at a conference when we were both clinical law professors. I told her I was coming to Hawaii for a visit and she invited me to call her. The karaoke evening followed.
Now she joins a tiny group (four to be exact) of openly gay justices on the highest courts of states. (There are two in Oregon and one in Colorado). Her confirmation vote in the state senate was unanimous.
