Kīlauea (literally, "much spreading" in Hawaiian) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Kauaʻi County, Hawaiʻi, United States. The population was 2,092 at the 2000 census. Kilauea is a small town on the northern shore of Kauai, one of the eight islands that make up the state of Hawaii. According to the Hawaii State Info website, 2,092 people reside in Kilauea, which is 1.5 square miles. It is nicknamed the “Guava Capital of the World” because it has the largest guava plantation in the world. In a source of some confusion, Kilauea, the Kauai town, shares its name with Kilauea, the volcano located on the Big Island of Hawaii, more than 500 km away at the extreme opposite end of the island chain. Kilauea, the volcano, is active today, but there has not been any volcanic activity anywhere on Kauai in millions of years.

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.
