Curt Bentley is a Utah attorney who indulges his passions for history, law, and politics by blogging at Utah Political Summary. Originally conceived as a site that would provide in-depth legal analysis regarding the effect of proposed and existing legislation, Utah Political Summary has evolved into a mix of opinion pieces, analyses of judicial decisions, and, yes, summaries of legislation. A moderate by nature, Curt approaches his analysis of political situations with an realistic assessment of the institutional limitations of political actors and respect for the American system of of divided power and dual sovereignty set up by the Founding Fathers.
Professionally, Curt practices in the areas of real estate development and finance and nonprofit law. In his spare time, he enjoys playing at piano (Bill Evans is his musical idol), guitar, trail running, road biking, and reading.
