Karl Anuta


Karl Anuta BS ’81, JD ’86 is still in Portland. He never left, despite some good offers. Anuta continues to practice environmental law for conservation-minded groups and individuals, as well as personal injury law for injured folks as he has done for more than 30 years. He recently got a great ruling requiring more serious environmental analysis of the impacts of Orcas on other Puget Sound inhabitants in Coalition to Protect Puget Sound Habitat v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Anuta continues to spend, in his view, too little time fishing, paddling, and camping along lakes and streams throughout the Pacific Northwest. He and his wife, Karen Russell JD ’90, have managed to get their two kids through out-of-state colleges and launched into the world. They are now empty nesters, trying to figure out how many decades it will take before they can rebuild their savings, retire, and more fully enjoy the outdoor activities they love. Anuta can be contacted by email at kga@integra.net.
