Brendan Johnson representing family of Sioux Falls drowning victim

The former US Attorney for the District of South Dakota and son of retired Democratic Senator Tim Johnson has been staying busy.

As Partner Attorney at Robins Kaplan LLP, Brendan Johnson helped the South Dakota chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union win the Constitution and Libertarian Parties' lawsuit against Secretary of State Shantel Krebs allowing more access to the ballot and is representing tribes in their suit against opioid manufacturers.
The mother of the little girl who drowned in the foamy river at Falls Park may sue the City of Sioux Falls. Johnson tells KELO.com News that he is investigating a potential lawsuit, and has so informed the city in writing. He's made several requests of the city, but would not specify what he's looking to get.
Read the rest here.

Catherine Piersol, wife of Clinton-appointee Judge Lawrence Piersol who heard Libertarian Party v. Krebs, is a longtime friend of the South Dakota Democratic Party and of the Johnson family.

Now that he's softened up the field it's widely believed Johnson is developing the resources necessary to mount a run for public office.
