Hawaii won't be able to pay 9,000 people back pay for their work as substitute teachers until March.

The teachers are owed the money as 2005 court ruling said the state underpaid substitutes by millions of dollars from 2000 to 2005.

The attorney general's office said last week the court won't finalize a settlement agreement between the parties until Dec. 16 or later. The state will then be able to begin what the attorney general's office called the "massive undertaking" of calculating taxes and benefits, preparing W-2 forms, and issuing paychecks.
