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.
