KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - A district judge says a requirement that environmental managers have degrees in engineering or a related field is too vague to enforce.

West Hawaii Today reports (https://bit.ly/1PQkGaa) the order issued Tuesday by 3rd Circuit Court Judge Ronald Ibarra ended a dispute that started in 2013 when former councilwoman Brenda Ford filed a lawsuit.

She and her lawyer argued Environmental Management Director Bobby Jean Leithead Todd’s English degree didn’t qualify her for the job.

Leithead Todd was appointed to her job by the Hawaii County mayor and confirmed by the city council.
