After Judas Priest, Heller New Foe for Nevada Democrat

An attorney who once sued heavy metal band Judas Priest is running to take on Rep. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) next year.

Ken McKenna of Reno, Nev. announced Friday he was running for Nevada’s 2nd District seat, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported.

McKenna, a personal injury and criminal defense attorney, made a name for himself in the 1990s by representing a Nevada family whose son committed suicide in 1985 after listening to a Judas Priest album. The civil suit was ultimately unsuccessful.

McKenna was elected to the state Board of Education Nov. 4.
