Hawaii lawyer adds to claims about prosecutor who shoved him

HONOLULU — A Hawaii attorney has made additional claims of misconduct against a prosecutor who shoved him in a courthouse altercation.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Tuesday that lawyer Myles Breiner says Honolulu Deputy Prosecutor Emlyn Higa attempted to have a relationship with a witness in two cases he was prosecuting.

Breiner’s filing says Higa also drafted legal documents for the woman’s civil case while he was a Maui deputy prosecutor, visited her home at night while intoxicated, and assaulted her adult son.

Higa denies the claims by the defense attorney.

A judge’s three-year injunction issued Oct. 8 prohibits Higa from contacting, threatening or harassing Breiner after Higa shoved Breiner in Honolulu’s First Circuit Court building Sept. 18.

Breiner is attempting to disqualify Higa from prosecuting a client for attempted murder.
