ACLU honors lawyer for advocacy

Rapid City, South Dakota (AP) 9-07

Rapid City lawyer Patrick Duffy has been named the 2007 South Dakota Champion of Liberty by the Dakotas Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Duffy was selected for his efforts to promote voting rights for American Indians in South Dakota and nationwide, said Jennifer Ring of Bismarck, N.D., executive director of the Dakotas Chapter.

“His work in this area has changed forever the political landscape by assisting Native Americans to assert their voices in the public debate,” Ring said.
