Nashville Lawyer Leaving After Winning Big Case

Friday was a big day for Kevin Klein, a lawyer for the city of Nashville, as he successfully defended a 2008 school rezoning plan against claims that it violated equal-protection rights. But it also was one of his last days on the job. Klein, who has been with the Metro Law Department for nearly nine years, is leaving later this week to start his own firm. The Klein Law Office will focus on federal litigation, emphasizing employment law and municipal defense, reports the Tennessean.
