News Release from Offices of Sens Schatz and Hirono, Sept 6, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Mazie K. Hirono (D-HI) and Brian Schatz (D-HI) announced the nomination of Shanlyn A.S. Park to be a judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii. Park was among those recommended to President Biden by Senators Hirono and Schatz, and a merit-based Federal Judicial Selection Commission.

“With decades of experience practicing law in Hawaii—including nearly two decades as a public defender—Judge Shanlyn A.S. Park has shown herself to be fair, impartial, and well suited to serve as a federal judge,” said the Senators. “Judge Park’s nomination reflects the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to building a federal judiciary that reflects the diversity and lived experiences of our communities, including the Native Hawaiian community. We’re glad the President has nominated her to continue serving Hawaii and our country, and look forward to working with our Senate colleagues to confirm her.”

Judge Shanlyn Park has been a state court judge on the First Circuit Court on Oahu since 2021. Previously, Judge Park worked from 2017 to 2021 at the Honolulu law firms McCorriston Miller Mukai MacKinnon, L.L.P. and Gallagher Kane Amai & Reyes. From 1997 to 2017, Judge Park served as an assistant federal public defender in the Office of the Federal Public Defender for the District of Hawaii. Prior to her service in that office, Judge Park was in private practice at Hisaka Stone & Goto from 1996 to 1997. She served as a law clerk for Judge Francis I. Yamashita, U.S. Magistrate Judge for the District of Hawaii from 1995 to 1996. Judge Park received her J.D. from the University of Hawaii William S. Richardson School of Law in 1995 and her B.A., cum laude, from Chaminade University of Honolulu in 1991.
