Selena Kyle

Senior Attorney

Kyle heads NRDC’s Litigation team in Chicago. Her work includes defending the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's carbon-pollution regulations for power plants and challenging oil and gas development that puts sensitive communities and scarce water supplies at risk. Kyle’s accomplishments include winning lawsuits that protected neighbors of a Tennessee landfill from air and water contamination and that blocked a California state budget raid of $155 million in energy-efficiency funding. In 2012, a California legal newspaper named Kyle one of the state's top 50 lawyers in their first decade of practice. Prior to joining NRDC, Kyle clerked for Judge Susan Dlott on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and a J.D. from Stanford Law School.
