Matt Kenna is headed to the top.
Well, the top of his field, anyway. This week the Durango attorney is leaving our little town in remote southwestern Colorado to go to Washington, D.C, where he will argue in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. The case is Summers v. Earth Island Institute, a legal challenge against the Forest Service's attempts to exclude public input and environmental reviews from timber sales. Matt has been involved with the case for more than five years.
River runner, skier, hunter, beer brewer, and general Durango-kinda guy, Matt is also an attorney with the Western Environmental Law Center.
You can learn more about his grand adventure and how he has been preparing for it in "Mr. Kenna Goes to Washington," an article I wrote for the Durango Telegraph.
Rock on, Matt!
