Maui Halloween nudity etc. found no longer illegal

Judge Tosses Native Hawaiian Challenge to Maui Halloween Party.
Quote:
“This Halloween party allows nudity, drunkenness and use of drugs on sacred grounds. Participants in the past have violated the state law through ‘offensively coarse behavior’ demonstrated by Halloween participants which caused its prohibition for the past 4 years,” a signed affidavit from Dancil stated.
But the judge wasn't convinced that the party would harm Dancil, Antone said.

I'd imagine that the issue of sacredness was raised in the complaint for the sake of drama. I doubt the judge ruled on the specific matter of sacredness. I didn't read the decision, but from the wording of the summary, I guess that the judge ruled on the narrow ground that the complainant had not shown he would be harmed by any non-sacredness, nudity, drunkenness, or drugs at the Halloween festival in Lahaina. So he had no standing to sue.
