Eric Miller, Jena MacLean and Luke Rona were mentioned in "Law360's Weekly Verdict: Legal Lions & Lambs," regarding the favorable SCOTUS decision in a sovereign immunity case.

The article states, "The U.S. Supreme Court ruled this week in favor of a Connecticut couple, saying the driver of a Mohegan Tribe-owned limo doesn’t share the tribe’s sovereign immunity from a suit over an off-reservation crash with the pair. Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority employee William Clarke had argued that because the Mohegans had indemnified him against tort claims, tribal sovereign immunity should block the suit. But Justice Sonia Sotomayor said an indemnification provision "cannot, as a matter of law, extend sovereign immunity to individual employees who would otherwise not fall under its protective cloak." The plaintiffs, Brian and Michelle Lewis, are represented by Polito & Associates LLC and Eric Miller, Jennifer MacLean and Luke Rona of Perkins Coie LLP. Clarke is represented by Daniel Krisch of Halloran & Sage LLP,and Neal Kumar Katyal, Morgan Goodspeed and Mitchell Reich of Hogan Lovells."
