Kapolei is an unincorporated community in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States on the island of Oahu. Popularly called the Second City of Kapolei, it is not a legal municipal corporation and thus not properly a city. Kapolei sits on what once was agricultural land used for sugarcane. The community takes its name from a volcanic cone, Puʻu o Kapolei. In the Hawaiian language, puʻu means hill and Kapo lei means beloved Kapo. According to legend, Kapo was sister to Pele. Kapolei is being developed as an urban center of the island of Oahu, second to Honolulu. It is situated on land that was once used for agriculture — the pineapple and sugarcane industries. Much of the land is part of the estate of industrialist James Campbell. The major developer of Kapolei is Kapolei Property Development, a subsidiary of James Campbell Company. Kapolei Hale is the civic center built by the City and County of Honolulu and includes an office of the Mayor of Honolulu and offices of various other government agencies.

What is civil litigation defense?

Civil law, as opposed to criminal law, is the branch of law dealing with disputes between individuals and/or organizations, in which compensation may be awarded to the victim. For instance, if a car crash victim claims damages against the driver for loss or injury sustained in an accident, this will be a civil law case. Civil law courts provide a forum for deciding disputes involving torts (such as accidents, negligence, and libel), contract disputes, the probate of wills, trusts, property disputes, administrative law, commercial law, and any other private matters that involve private parties or organizations including government departments. The objectives of civil law are different from other types of law. In civil law there is the attempt to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or settle a dispute. If there is a victim, they get compensation, and the person who is the cause of the wrong pays, this being a civilized form of, or legal alternative to, revenge.
