The ICA is composed of six judges, who sit in randomly selected panels of three. Each judge is appointed to an initial ten-year term by the Governor. Judges are nominated by the Governor from a list of between four and six names submitted by the Judicial Selection Commission. A judge's nomination is subject to confirmation by the Hawaii Senate, but reappointments require only approval of the Judicial Selection Commission. Under Article VI §§3-4 of the Hawaii Constitution, all judges of the Court of Appeals, like the judges of the state Supreme Court, have a mandatory retirement age of 70.
the judges were:
Chief Judge Craig H. Nakamura (September 16, 2009 – September 15, 2019)
Judge Daniel R. Foley (October 2, 2000 – October 1, 2010)
