A federal judge in Hawaii on Wednesday refused to temporarily halt funding for a Native Hawaiian programs.

U.S. District Judge Susan Oki Mollway said there was no emergency reason to stop the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and the Hawaiian Homes Commission from using state funds. A housing trust and other programs have been created for the benefit of Native Hawaiians.

But Mollway said a group of residents challenging the state have standing on a number of claims. They hope that their case will eventually open up the funds, and Native Hawaiian land, to the entire population.
