The news was first reported by journalist Meghan Cuniff, who said in a Twitter post, “Regarding Tory Lanez’s Tuesday court date, yes, there is a date listed on the jail roster. It’s not on Judge Herriford’s calendar, and he’s got a bunch of other stuff at the time. Attorney David Kenner confirmed to me last week he’s now representing Tory.”
Who is David Kenner?
Kenner, a criminal defense lawyer, began his practise in the state of California in 1968, and has since then spent his career dealing with both State and federal criminal cases.
His law firm, known as Kenner Law Firm, is run out of his office on Ventura Boulevard in Encino, California.
Kenner has tackled a number of money-laundering cases over the years, the most famous of them being Operation Polar Cap, in which around $45 million in cash and around half a ton of cocaine was seized from smugglers.
One of his most publicized cases was as a defense attorney of Snoop Dogg in 1996 when the Long Beach-based rapper was arrested on murder charges.
Snoop Dogg was acquitted in the case and he remains close to Kenner till date. The legendary rapper even performed for a small gathering on Kenner’s 80th birthday.
The veteran lawyer works closely with Brett A. Greenfield, who is also a part of the Kenner Law Firm. The two of them often team up to handle challenging cases.
Kenner was behind the acquittal of two members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle club who were charged with twelve counts of murder in South Dakota.
