The Hawaii Office of Information Practices has rejected a community group’s request for confidential information regarding a planned wind energy farm involving Castle & Cooke Chairman David Murdock. The office concluded that disclosing the confidential information would cause competitive harm by revealing business practices and compromising future negotiations.

According to Castle & Cooke President Harry Saunders, Ellison did not want to be involved with the wind farm project, and Murdock didn’t want to sell it. Read more HERE.
